What is a woman to do when she only has 3 boys and wants to make cute girly things??? Well she thinks of her oh-so-darling nieces. Once in a while I get a hankering to make some cutesy things that my boys (nor my hubby) would ever approve of for themselves. So thankfully our siblings have had little girls of their own that I can spoil as needed!!!
One of my latest crafty projects stems from Mother's Day. If you see on my Mother's Day post, there is a flower/corsage made of fabric. Well I just HAD to borrow the template from my friend so that I could make a bunch of flowers. Of course the little girls in the family were on my mind...
I decided to make these little sandals for Madison and Charlotte P. Baby Charlotte will get some next year. I figured she wouldn't be as keen on them since she isn't walking yet!
I looked all over the place for some little girl sandals. I should have gone to Old Navy in the beginning. They have much sturdier flip-flops and their prices are always awesome - 2/$5. Then I had to narrow down the colors. I had already picked fabrics so we just had to match things up. Travis helped choose pink for Maddie - he figured she'd appreciate it more than the polka-dotted yellow flip-flops. And for Charlotte's there wasn't a choice because they don't make little turquoise sandals.
I hope they have outfits to match, but if they are anything like my boys, they don't care if it matches or not.
Here is a closeup of the buttons along the sides. I don't know if the buttons will stay on forever, but they sure are cute with the fabric flowers.
