Garden Alley sweet linen baby loafers giveaway

Y'all remember Lena from Lena's Patterns?  Who makes the patterns for these sublime little shoes?  You remember how generous she was with her not one, not two, but three pattern giveaway last month?

Oh, good, I knew you'd remember.  Yes, I think she's pretty neat too.  My kids really love her kimono shoes.

Okay, now look at these:

I know!  Darling, right?!

Want to win a pair?

No, not the pattern (though you can find that here).  I meant, would you like to win the actual shoes?

Yes?  Yes!

Of course you do!  These wee linen loafers come in sizes 0 to 24 months.  They are made by Garden Alley, which is really Lena, who creates them by hand from pattern to final button with almost all natural materials (there is a layer of thick poly needle felt to keep the feet warm against cool surfaces).  I think they're beautiful and love the wooden buttons.

What's that?  Just tell you how to get these gorgeous loafers onto your sweet baby's feet? 

Alright, settle down.

For a chance to win these lovely linen loafers by Garden Alley, leave a comment below telling me how much you love them.  Feel free to add any additional words about your love for me too, if you're feeling inclined.  I warn you, though, flattery will not affect the outcome as I will make a random draw on Wednesday evening, May 25 (after I return from house shopping... again.  But that is another story for another day).


Good luck!

********************

Well, hello again!  I have drawn a random comment.  Seeks, darhling, can you get a hold of me at vegbee[AT]littleprintdesigns.com and I can connect you with a sweet little pair of loafers.

Thank you to everyone to played along and a double thank you to Lena and Garden Alley!

  20. So sweet! I would love to be randomly chosen to win these, as my sister is expecting her first daughter this August. How fun to be able to put such sweet covers on such sweet feet. (And you really need to know how much I love your site too. You created a craft/sewing-blog monster.)

  21. I've just bought a pattern from Lena's at Etsy. I found her through Sew mama sew, and through Lena I've found you. I love all her patterns, so, of course, I would love to win the shoes. I have a lovely girl turning two this week!. I will follow your blog from now on.
    Thanks

    I love them so much I bought the pattern (in my size). If I won the shoes, I would give them to my massage therapist's daughter's son, who is about to be born any minute.

    And I love you, because you share your successes and fails, your confidence and your insecurity, and you make me feel as though if we give our children our love, our best effort, and our true selves, we will make it out the other side. Not unscathed, but still standing.

  24. Those are so cute! They would go to a sweet baby who will be born soon.

  29. Wow - these are fantastic! I just love them...I have to confess that today is the first time that I have looked at your blog but it just looks amazing and I am going to be a regular visitor from now on. I have a 10 month old with big feet...actually she is very tall (trying to grow into her feet). I am always on the lookout for cute shoes that don't look out of place on her and these are just the ticket! Thanks for sharing.

    I stumbled across your blog a year ago whilst looking for craft tutorials and I have become a regular visitor ever since, although I seldom comment. So let me take this opportunity to thank you for keeping me entertained! I really appreciate the honesty and generosity with which you write, create and share.

  37. My latest blogpost shows the sweetest little feet which are just waiting for these sweetest little shoes. Three weeks old, he already owns three pairs of mama-made shoes, but these are really too cute. After all, a boy too can never have enough shoes...:)

  38. These are simply adorable!! I have an 18 month old who is really the size of about a 12 month old and she is just learning to get around by pulling herself up and cruising the furniture. These would be soooooo cute on her and useful for when she starts really going to town!
