Baby Daisy Shoes


Here is my second version of the baby shoe. I've called it the Baby Daisy Shoe, and although I started off intending to just embroidery daisies, you can see I got a bit carried away. It is very simple to just add a little bumble bee.


White daisies are my favourite, but on these deep red shoes, I thought a pink gerbera would look better. The centre of the flowers is made with a collection of french knots.



And here are some more flowers that I really love: bluebells.



The knitting pattern is available on ravelry and Craftsy. You can use any doubleknit wool, and the embroidery is there to inspire the imagination. The shoes are knitted on two needles, and in one piece, and is sized for 0-3 months, or 3-6 months. It is a very easy knit. You can knit them in two shades, although I also like the look of the ones at the top of the page where I have just used one colour. I love this wool with all its little random flecks.

I am going to put these samples, and some of my Baby Bee Shoes, into my Etsy Shop. So if you aren't into knitting, but would like a pair of baby daisy shoes, some of these will appear there soon.  I think they would make a great gift for a new born. 


I have decided to put a bit of effort into the finished objects section of my shop over the next month. At present it doesn't look very appealing, with it's one phone cosy. 

I have an idea for a cute, but educational toy ...

  7. Oh, goodness! These are precious. I really love the little bumble bees you added to the first pair, and those bluebells are lovely! Do you have any recommendations on books or tools for a person who (doesn't need another hobby)might want to try some embroidery?

  28. These are so sweet, I love the little bee and the daisies, I've just finished a bee plaque, how come most people like bees when incorporated into craft work but run a mile if a real one comes too close. :)
