Little boots for the girls

I chanced upon a DIY pack for miniature leather boots at Daiso some time ago, i just wanted to learn the pattern so I just have to grab it. XD

It is pretty easy to make, saddle stitching is interesting, it took awhile. I used my own artificial leather instead in case I mess it up, will try again with the artificial leather the pack provided. The pattern from this pack is slightly big at the feet area and the base is too soft to keep the shape, so there are some tweaking needed if I am to use this pattern for the girls.

The boot on the right leg was done quite awhile ago, I love those tiny eyelets! That pattern is harder to make though since it involves hemming.

Update on my painful elbow.
I have been resting for a week from knitting now. The pain has reduced by about 70%, my elbow isn’t as tight now. Hopefully my elbow will recover soon and I can resume to some knitting with stretching exercises in between to avoid this happening again. Luckily crochet doesn’t give me such pain.

  1. Hi, I like a lot your work. I have found your old blog and I writen a question about the post “I mugs ask you a question”…but I don’t know if you are working in this blog. Here my original question….

    Hi! I found really helpful your post…I have try to make some desings but when I wash the mugs normally the ink falls :(…. I have a question!… How long we must dry the desing already drawn in a mug… 24 hours? ….and after that go to bake 30 mins? I’m right? Thanks you for your answer and I’m sorry for my english.

    1. Hello Tatiana, sorry I didn’t see your comment sooner. Thank you for writing to me. I did not wait too long before baking the drawn mug. I popped it in my oven as soon as the marker ink dries up and I baked it for 30 mins. I have also tried baking longer than 30 mins like 45 mins to an hour. The drawing on my mug will not wash off if I only rinse it, it will not withstand scrubbing. From my reading online, Sharpie marker doesn’t work on all ceramic mug surfaces, some absorbs the ink better and some does not. Best of luck to you!
