While my sister was visiting with me, she worked tirelessly on this tiny version of the Victorian Shoe hoping it would be appropriate as a Christmas Tree ornament. I think her instincts were right!
I love this little shoe but I’m not sure you’d ever find me making one this size. The Victorian shoe is difficult enough to make without adding the stress of making it in such a small size. And I am the one in the family who works with miniatures!
Megan’s shoe is 4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches at its widest point across the top of the shoe. The back of the shoe is finished as well with red and white candy stripped paper. Every inch is perfectly finished!
It has a little loop on the back for hanging and a little space under the top of the shoe where one could slip a ring or a charm wrapped in tissue as a special surprise. A few folded $20 bills or a check would fit nicely in there, too!
My sister is new to all of this and I know she would be so thrilled to get comments from some of my dear friends out there to encourage her in her paper crafting endeavors. We’d both love to hear from you! Blessings and Hugs to all…
