Cute Overload.

Flowergirl Embroidered Converse

When these shoes arrived in the mail, I couldn't help but ooo and ahh and generally fawn over them as if I was someone's crazy aunt, known family wide for her cheek pinching penchant. What is it about little one's shoes that trigger seemingly uncontrollable googly eyed reactions in us?! If that wasn't enough, they became doubly adorable with the embroidery I did for this customer—one pair for her flowergirl and the other for her ringbearer. I can only imagine how nervous or weirded out a kid might feel walking in formal clothes in front of so many people and think these shoes are the perfect little gift to kickstart their confidence and comfort level on such a big day!

Kid's keepsake shoes
As I worked on them, I got to thinking that they'd also be a fabulous fresh take on those bronzed booties of old, embroidered with their name and birth date and hung in the nursery or handed down as a keepsake.

Ok, I think that should cover any cute deficiency anyone may have been experiencing. I declare you cured and encourage you to check out more pictures of these shoes here and here if you experience any relapses.
