A custom order

Sometimes people ask me to do very special things for them. This order was one. I was sent the bottom of an heirloom vintage christening gown and asked to make the leftovers into baby shoes. The top was being remade into a gown for her own daughter's christening. She wanted matching shoes and a clippy with the remnants. I carefully cut out the ribbon, lace, and trim and reworked them into this pair of shoes. I even made a matching hair clip to go with it. Aren't they precious?

I was honored. A reminder that children truly are a gift from the Lord.


  1. The shoes, the hairclip, both are so incredibly beautiful. What a wonderful idea.

  2. Those are gorgeous! You are so talented!

  3. these are so gorgeous jenny! i love them. how special!
