Felt Shoes

I love seeing all the creative ideas for handmade items at Christmas time.
My only wish is that I had the time to make them all.
But, dreaming is sometimes as much fun as making.
The latest eye catchers for me have been Felt Shoes.

Look at these cute little baby shoes from Pearl Bee.
They provide a free template and tutorial, too!
Wouldn't they make a great baby gift?

Jenny Harris from Allsorts also provides a free pattern with tutorial for these Bitty Elf Clogs.
So cute!
After seeing all the ideas and tutorials on Jenny's site, I have an inkling that working with felt might be my next addiction.

Amy Smart (Diary of A Quilter) took the Elf Clog pattern one step farther and made a pincushion.
Love it!
I make it a point to stay away from stores especially during the 2 weeks leading up to Christmas, but today I am making an exception and you will probably find me standing long lines with felt samples, happily dreaming away.

These are so cute! Thanks for sharing the link. They remind me of wooden shoes and I know a few family members who would like some.
