Unique, Handmade Soft Baby Shoes Giveaway - Ends 4/30

I contacted Babynme's Etsy shop, asking if I could do a hand-crocheted toy giveaway. Instead, she offered me an awesome pair of shoes for Lydia! She let me pick the design from a few different styles and pick whatever colors I wanted. She also asked if I wanted a hemp bottom, which I did want :-)

These are Lydia's first shoes. Pediatricians and physical therapists generally recommend not putting your child in shoes until the child is cruising/walking, but because these are so soft, they would not restrict growth as regular shoes would. They are hand-crocheted, so they are soft. Without the hemp bottom, they would be worn similarly to socks/booties.

I also had Babynme design a matching crocheted headband at a very reasonable price (not included in this giveaway, but worn in the picture to see additional items this Etsy shop owner can create).


Since it was Lydia's first pair of shoes, she was having fun exploring them, so it was hard to keep both of them on her feet at once. Here's a close up of the shoes:


We love Lydia's first shoes, especially since they were handmade just for her! The colors are vibrant and the style is super-cute. If you are having Babynme design shoes for a child under 8 months, I would suggest not using a hemp sole, so they would be more like little booties. If your child is beginning to cruise/walk, I would suggest getting the hemp sole to make them more shoe-like. 

There's only one way to enter this giveaway:

Follow my blog through Google Friend Connect AND visit Babynme and tell me what color/style shoes you would design for your little one!


Be sure to include your email address with each entry so that I know how to find you. This giveaway and all my other Blogmania giveaways end on 4/30 at 11:59 pm EST. If you are the winner, you will have 48 hours to respond before I choose another winner. Good luck!


**The winner of this giveaway is Heidi. Thank you to all who participated!**
