Aren’t they adorable? And let me tell you they look like the cat’s pajamas on my two little darlings!!
We did have a slight problem with Little Sister. She couldn’t keep them on!! I was worried about that because it seems my girls have all had that problem with shoes that don’t have a strap to keep them on. I was hoping she was old enough to learn how to walk in them anyway. But, alas, she just couldn’t do it. So… after debating on whether to send them back and exchange them for a size smaller, I decided to bring some sewing skills into the picture:) Enter some chocolate colored bias binding and a scrap of elastic, and voila! A strap to keep them on!
Because they are made of suede leather the sewing part was really quite easy. The hardest part was getting the side of the shoe and the binding under the machines presser foot at the right angle. But I was determined and figured it out:)
Little Sister loves them! And she can keep them on her feet. So the next time you buy a pair of flats for you little girl and she can’t keep them on, don’t despair. A little time, some bias binding, a scrap of narrow elastic, a sewing machine and some thread to match your shoes and you have a cute little strap to keep them on her feet!
