A few weeks ago my friend Cindy Adkins from Whimsical Musings showcased a vintage baby shoe she had transformed into an adorable work of art. She is selling the shoe in her Etsy shop. She made a suggestion in her post about how the shoe would make a wonderful gift for baby's 1st Christmas. I really loved the shoe and the idea and I had a good reason to make two. We had two births in our family this year. A new grandson was born in March and a great granddaughter was born in May.
I began the quest to find the shoes. Unfortunately I could not find vintage shoes. I did find a more modern pair of white baby shoes at the Goodwill and decided they would be a perfect weight for a tree ornament. While my shoes look nothing like Cindy's shoe, her shoe was the source of inspiration. Thank you Cindy.
I love the way they turned out. I hope the babies will enjoy hanging them on their Christmas trees for years to come.
