Curly Silver Wire Earrings

I got the idea for these earrings from Stephanie Well's (Double Happiness Jewelry) new Earring Book.  I love the design because it is so simple and yet still interesting and different.  Its a great starting point for a number of different modifications.

Blue Baby Loafers/Moccasins

I loved the Hook Candy Mary Jane baby bootie pattern, so I decided to also buy the Moccasin pattern- and here is the first pair I made (well one shoe anyways).  This pattern was a bit more time consuming than the Mary Janes (the top is made sepeately from the bottom and the two have to be 'sewn' together, and the tie is a seperate string), but still very easy to do.  I think I'm going to try these in 'girl colors' next.

Orange and Grey Hat Part Two

Baby Mary Janes

In the past, I always thought booties tended to look like two sacks with strings, which is why I love the modern styled bootie patterns from Hook Candy (plus the patterns are really easy to follow).  They take a little while since there are two soles per shoe, but I have a friend who made a pair with only one sole and they still look good (newborns wont be walking anyways). I wish I found the site earlier, theres been a couple of shower recently where I know the mothers would have loved the booties.
