This darling baby shoe was given to me by my fairy swap partner Barbara. It is a pin cushion, but I will not use it for that purpose. It's waaay too cute to be stuck with pins!!!! This will have a place of honor on a night table for all to see. Barbara did a great job and was a wonderful swap partner. I am now on a quest to make one of these baby shoe pin cushions to sell on ebay or in my etsy shop.
This little shoe was painted with a pink crackle paint and also is embellished with a small news print in the german language. The toe has pretty silk flowers and a baby with lace wings, thus the "fairy". A pretty pink ribbon is used for the shoe ties. I just can't tell you how much I appreciate the time it took to create this lovely piece for me. Thankyou Barbara, I will always treasure this gift.
