twinkletoes2 These (Handmade) Booties Were Made for Walkin

Shoe maker Sharon Raymond has come up with simple plans for making a pair of comfortable shoes for babies ready to stand on their own two feet. She says:

How many pairs of shoes does a child grow out of before he or she is fully-grown? I don’t know the number, but I do believe if we were making some of those shoes, the cost of raising a child would plummet (a slight exaggeration) and our children’s feet would be healthier. And, if we use recycled materials to make them, our children’s shoes would have a smaller “footprint” on the earth.

Check out her plans here.
