Baby shoes for a Boy

 A friend of mine just delivered her first baby not to long ago and I really wanted to make her something for him.  I got Simplicity 2491 recently, and decided that would be the perfect choice.

I'm very happy with these "very boy" shoes!  To make them I used a left over scrap from the Ball Bag project, and the same fleece that I used to make the Lambkin.  I also happened to have a short piece of ribbon that matched the fleece perfectly.  Not only that, but it was the exact length I needed too!  After I cut my two pieces there was only an inch left.  How's that for perfect?
This is the first time I've make something for a little boy, and I'm very happy with them!  I can't wait to make shoes from this pattern again soon for my own little baby girl.
