We recently hosted two baby showers at work. They were lots of fun but they added to the already chaotic end-of-year festivities.
I made these pretty little shoes for one of the showers as party favours. They were filled with cellophane bags of M&M's, the mum-to-be's favourite sugar hit. Thirty in all were made, phew!

that I was working well into the night - again
This is what the cut files looked like before assembly . . . don't really look like shoes do they? The "cogs" going around the outside were bent over and then used to fix the double-sided under sole to the top part of the shoe.
|a split pin was used for the "buckle"|
Boy and girl (don't want to say male and female) shoes were made as mum wants another surprise when the baby is born. Sigh . . . those were the days.
Personally I think she's going to have a little pink thing, but I'm one of a few.
