An Odd Little Shoe

I made this little shoe for the Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast this week. Anne (Itsapassion) was the hostess and she showed us the Little Odd Forest web site and I found these little shoes that caught my eye. Here's another front view of the the little shoe I created. It measures about 3 inches long and 1.5 inches wide and maybe an inch tall at the back.
I used a pattern from a book called Paper for All Seasons by Sandra Lounsbury Foose - (this is the same book with the LL Bean bag pattern in it - you can see a sample I made of that here.) This is a view of the bottom before I put another sole on it to cover the tabs. Here is a view from the back where you can see the little band you put on to run the ribbon through. I used Polka Dot Basics from Papertrey Ink for the dots on the shoe, stamping them on Rustic White Paper. The inside is Pink Patterns designer paper and the ribbon is Melon Berry Luxe Satin - all from Papertrey. The little ladybug is from Uptown Rubber Stamps.

I've had this pattern for ever and I'm so glad to finally have made one of these cute little shoes - it would make a great baby shower favor wouldn't it?!?!?
Well - enough stamping for the moment - I'm off to wash my car (boy does it need it!)
