Two little feet, ten little toes,
Leave their impressions today.
Soon they will wear two little shoes,
And be running and jumping at play.
Two little feet, too little time,
Before they are walking to school,
Kicking a rock, or skipping a rope,
Wading a puddle or jumping a pool.
Two little feet, One little child,
Will soon go their own way,
But footprints in my mind recall,
They stood here yesterday.
It is almost a shame to cover up these sweet little toes. So perfectly tiny and fun to kiss! But the weather is getting cooler and Ruby’s long toes and feet make it hard for newborn socks to stay on. They always fall off. I’ve even tried bigger socks to fit her length, but they are too wide for her narrow little foot. So I scaled down my favorite cloth baby shoes pattern and they did the trick!
I had it in my mind when I was pregnant that I was going to make dozens of these little shoes to have stocked up for her…..how many did I make before she was born? None. Life is busy!
So I stayed up late a couple of nights ago and made her 3 pairs of super soft flannel shoes. Perfect for these cooler days. They are great with or without socks and won’t fall off. I’ve made so many of these for friends and family that it was fun to finally get to make some for my baby! And this is only the beginning 🙂
I can’t find the pattern that I used online anymore. I’m not sure if she deleted her blog or what happened, but I still have the pdf that you can view here.
