Jack & Jill Loafer

Summer in New England came to an abrupt close at 1:00 in the afternoon this past Saturday. It seriously felt like someone flipped a switch and fall started marching in. My six month old, who has been barefoot for the past three and a half months, is going to have to start wearing shoes to keep these little piggies warm.

I bought the Jack & Jill Loafer pattern from Sweet Pea Patterns not too long ago, and I finally had a chance to try it out today. These shoes are pretty easy to make, and once you get the first shoe put together, the second is a breeze. The pattern instructions are very easy to follow and there are lots of photos included to help you out.

My youngest is going to start crawling in the not too distant future, and she's going to have trouble getting around on our hardwood floors. With this in mind, I used a product called Jiffy Grip for the outer soles of the shoes. It is a fabric with a vinyl dot surface that provides a non-slip grip. It was really easy to work with and very inexpensive.

Now those little piggies will be nice and cozy as the weather starts to get cooler.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out other great projects at the link-ups below.

These are adorable! My 2nd just turned 7 months and have been thinking of what she'll be wearing on her feet soon too. Sounds like both of our girls' (Oldest and Youngest) are around the same age.
