Valentine's Day Footwear for Babies
I used a long red ribbon to tie them around a couple times on her ankle. Using the ribbon allows you to readjust it for sizing so the baby can wear it for a little while as she grows. I've made them before with elastic, also. It's easier to put on using elastic bands because you just slip them around her ankles without tying.
I made this flower from a fabric I wasn't using, either.
She wanted to wear it as a bracelet. You can also attach the elastic band closer to the center to use as a hair tie.
Here are a few more samples of baby footless sandals I've made reusing old clothes.
Footless sandals are perfect for babies who don't walk or crawl around much. It can be worn to add something extra to their outfits if you want to show off their toes instead of wearing shoes. They're best for photo ops. I didn't have a lot of time to write up a whole DIY tutorial on these footless sandals but that's in the works! Hope you liked this idea! They're very popular now and will be a nice touch for baby's Valentine attire if she's taking pics or going out!
I've been making plans for Valentine's Day all week for my Hubby and kids. It's an exciting day for my son who is in Kindergarten as they will be celebrating the day with a party and lots of goodies. He keeps asking me to make muffins, cookies and brownies. So far, we have the Star Wars Valentine cards ready to go!
Have you been creating any fun projects for Valentine's Day?
