Eating this elephant, bite #2

Quick while The Baby is asleep-
Got out my project box and cut the tags out of the shoes because holy moly that’s a lotta tag there, Sansha.

Put the shoes on and tugged on different points along the side to find the best spot for maximum archiness.

Then pinned the straps, tied the drawstring in a bow, walked around, adjusted the strap tightness, loosened the bow, and then The Baby woke up and requested immediate attention so shoes off, back to project box.

    I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but I find that no matter what I do, I have to whipstitch the sole down all the way around or else it bunches up under my toes.It would be easier to rip it off, but for some reason I can’t…

    I just found your blog yesterday, and I am already in love. I am an absolute beginner at age 33. Thank you for helping me see that my desire isn’t complete craziness.

    Sansha needs to learn the term “tag less”. The little edge that is left after the tag is clipped is so annoying. It just lies in wait to stick you. I hope little AB lets you finish this project soon. Longer nap little AB.

    • Yes! Baby, are you reading this?!
      My baby goal for this coming month is to establish a nice predictable everyday-at-the-same-time, two-hours-long-or-so nap time, so I have a time when I can get my sew on.
