" Vintage" Baby Shoe Tutorial

One of them is how to take new baby shoes
and make them look aged.
Above is one I aged, then put my Tea Bag Roses in.
(Also a free tutorial on my side bar.) =)

  They are just slightly scruffed up as I wanted them to be 'sweet' more than old.
 I have also put my little bird nests in them as seen at beginning of post.
(tutorial for nests on side bar, too) =)

Go HERE for a tutorial on making new baby shoes look old.
See my side bar for other free tutorials, and enjoy.
Please be sure if you do any up to let me know. 
I would love to see them and show my friends too.
(the first baby shoe pin cushion I did was an idea from Dawn, at 
The Feathered Nest. She has great tutorials,too.)

I'm joing White Wedneday, 
White Wednesday 
(and did you see she featured my link up from last week??)

Thanks Angie & Kathleen for hosting each week!

Blessings all!!

Oh my word, Barbara Jean! That's are the cutest bloomin' things I've seen! Yes, by all means link them up at Knick of Time Tuesday!

I've got 2 sets of baby shoes that I love and hate to mess with, but I'm seriously tempted after seeing what you did with yours!

Hi Barbara,
Congratulations on being featured on Knick of Time!!! I can't believe it--I have a baby shoe tutorial too, but it's because I had to do a special order (to personalize in a hurry and decided to photograph it over the weekend in case people wanted to make them.)
Happy Holidays to you!!!!
