Christening baptism booties - Boy

Today was a very strange and "unproductive" day for me.... everything seemed to take forever . I am sure you get days like that. No matter what you touch, things just don't want to move along :)
However , I have managed to finish this pair of silk christening booties. When it comes to using piping in my sewing I like to match it up exactly. All of my piping is handmade by me. I am pedantic as to colour matches . Yes, I know it takes up some extra time but the effects are worth it..... in this case , the piping was made in navy satin as in the suit set. The soil of the shoe has an extra layer of heavy - stiff interfacing. It gives the booties a firm shoe look . Why don't you try it out ?
