Little Leather Shoes

A small sewing project for little feet

My younger son has just started crawling and we have a few toddler birthdays coming up, so I decided to make a new batch of shoes (my elder son was my guinea pig and he is on his third set now). I used leather scraps from a local leather wholesaler and thick boiled wool for the insoles. (I did try really hard to find some elves to help me at night, but the market is just not what it was, once upon a time.)

These are the next size up for my younger son as I know he will grow out of the first ones very quickly.
