I ♥ Converse

Almost finished
I totally crafted my face off this month. Mending my bigbag was just the tip of March Mending and Craft Month. I ended up mending a jacket, a shirt collar, and my interview slacks. Then I made kitty ears. And I finally, I made a pair of shoes for my sister's baby. Naturally, I wanted to knit them and I did complete one shoe. However, midway through knitting the second shoe, I was displeased at the overall construction and decided to hand-sew them out of felt. I reverse-engineered my own converse and combined it with a modified baby shoe sewing pattern from the 70s. My hand-sewing skills are far from perfect and they still need shoelaces, but I tell you they were truly a labor of love.
