And the feet goes on....

I love family.
I love tradition.
I miss my kids being little. 
 I love having grand-babies.
And with all that being said, I would like to share with you the lion baby slippers I made for my newest grandson Quintin.
As you can see by the picture above, I had originally made slippers for my kids when they were little.  My son got his slippers for Christmas when he was about 11 and wore them until he was a teenager.  I had packed them up when he moved out as an adult.  When Quintin was born, I pulled them out of my cedar chest with the intention of making a new pair for him.  After a quick google search, I actually found the vintage pattern book, which I just had to order.  As you can see, the new slippers were a big hit. :0)
And daddy's slippers still fit too.  LOL
I decided to list these slippers in my shop for your children and grandchildren too.
I have them listed in my The Craft Star shop and offer them in the size you need, and will be adding other animals soon.  If you would like a pair for your special little one, just give me the measurement of the child's foot at the time of your order, and within 2 weeks, they'll be on their way.
What is your favorite animal?
Be blessed,


  1. I love the slippers, I bet they are very warm and comfy!

  2. Those are fab! I couldn't knit/crochet my way out of a paper bag! My fav animal lately is our new puppy! My daughter has a thing for squirrels and giraffes.
