I love corduroy! 
 I'm not sure why.  
It's just fabric.  
But something about it makes me happy!
I've always wanted to make myself a big corduroy patchwork blanket.  
Maybe someday when I'm old I'll do that for myself.  

In the meantime... 
I intend to use my LARGE stash of cord on some Shoepiddy Doos!
Really, I have so much corduroy stored, it's ridiculous.
I went through a phase of raiding the corduroy on sale (this was years ago, of course)...
I was out of control!! Seriously.

I have this really great wide-wale that I really want to work with... 
but I think it might be a bit of a challenge unless I get a different needle for my machine.

Until then, I'll be working with the small-wale cord!

These little maroon corduroy shoes turned out so sweet!

What do you think?

My Favorites So Far!

I had found this adorable fabric a few years ago when I was on a kick of making tote bags.  
It is really nice and thick - might even be an upholstery fabric now that I think about it!  
It made for some really great totes!  

When I found the scraps in my fabric pile, I knew I had to make a couple of pairs of shoes!

Of course I had to make a pair for my little girl!

She loves her some shoes!!

Shoepiddy Doos!

I've started this blog as a way to showcase some of the adorable soft shoes that I've been sewing.  I hope you will enjoy seeing what I have created and continue to create!  

Sometimes my sewing is slow-going due to the fact that I only work when my daughter naps... but I am grateful for the time I do get to put in and look forward to seeing what else I can whip up! 

 These were the first pair I ever made... too cute!

(0-6 months)

 I made these for my daughter!  
I couldn't resist the Muppet Babies!

I have more fabric and can make them in any size, if you're interested!
(newborn through toddler size 5!)
