Review and Giveaway- Needle Craft Patterns

I made something cute for my little guy, want to see?  Cute little shoes!


When Vasilena from Needle Craft Patterns contacted me to do a review/giveaway combo I was excited because I had been wanting some shoes for my cute little guy.  Since he doesn't walk yet, they aren't a necessity and when you live on a budget you don't buy it if it's not a necessity.  But that didn't stop me from wanting some :) 

Needle Craft Patterns has lots of cute and very affordable patterns!  With one $4.50 pattern you can make loads of shoes in different colors and prints.  And since they only take fabric scraps and about 15 minutes why wouldn't you? 

I never thought of making baby shoes before, but with an easy to follow pattern it's actually pretty simple.  The pattern reads like a tutorial, not like a Mccalls type pattern.  I prefer this because it's good for begginers like me who don't know all of the sewing language.  Someone like my mom who has been sewing with the same type of pattern for years may not, but I have no doubt that anyone could successfully make these shoes using this pattern

The pattern was emailed to me promptly and the service was great, Vasilena is very sweet!  And most importantly my little guy loves his shoes!  You may  notice, I made them to match his little tie onsies :)  Oh I will throw in that the pattern runs a little small so if your baby has chubby feet like mine you may want to consider making it a couple sizes bigger.  And make sure to add a seam allowance.

I would reccomend Needle Craft Patterns to anyone.  I couldn't have been more pleased with my experience!

I think making baby shoes is a great idea They are so overpriced in the stores.  And this way you can make them to match certain outfits.  And I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that even if you've never sewed before you could make these shoes (at least the ones I made- which are the Poppy ones)!  Basically, I love them!

Here are some more of the adorable patterns you can find over at Needle Craft Patterns:

They even have shoes for adults!


And now. . . Giveaway time. 

Remember this is going to be my last giveaway for awhile.  At least until I can manage to get a few other things off my plate.  It's just so jammed full right now I want to make sure I still have enough time to lavish my little guy with attention.  All of you who have giveaways you know how much time they can take, especially when you do a lot of them.  They are fun though, aren't they?
