I recently made a baby gift for a friend and used the Jaden Baby Sneakers pattern.

Here is my review.

Pattern: Jaden Baby Sneakers

Textiles Used:  Wool from a thrifted mens suit coat for the outside.  I lined it with some black fleece from my stash.

Sizing: Says newborn – fits more like 3 months

The Good:  I love the way these turned out.  So cute.  And at $4 I thought that it was a steal and something I can make over and over.

The Bad: The instructions were not the best.  I was confused a number of times.  Also, the shoes are more time consuming than they look.

Changes Made: none

Conclusion: Very cute result.  I would recommend it to anyone who feels confident with their sewing abilities.  I think that beginners may find it hard to follow the instructions.

    I have a few of these shoe patterns from the same company, and I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never made any, so I’m glad to read a review of them. When looking through the directions they did seem a bit confusing. I really need to try some.

    Wow – these are beyond adorable! I’ve made a couple pairs of baby shoes too (though none this awesome!), and I was also surprised how something so small could be so time-consuming!

    Would you consider selling these?

      Unfortunately not, but I am so flattered that you asked! I already gave them to my friend as a present. I think you should give them a go yourself though. Good luck.
