Tattoo Baby Shoes

OK. I'm hooked. I love these shoes! They took me forever to make, but my first attempt with anything takes really long. I added thick interfacing and soft dotted minky for warmth.

This tattoo fabric is one of my favorites and I've made tons of things out it including aprons, pillows, dresses, holiday stockings and potholders. Though bleeding hearts and skulls aren't your normal baby wear, there's a certain charm about it.

I think I'll make some lighter weight shoes for expecting friends and family and see how they turn out. But first, I promised my son a new stuffed animal....maybe a tattooed elephant?
