I made this order for a customer in Canada.  She requested some newborn-sized wrap moccasins in a gender-neutral color.  These are my new favorite!  I think they turned out so cute.  They are going to look so perfect on that new little baby--boy or girl!

 These are some fully beaded Girl's moccasins in size 12.  I love the gradient of purples!

A close-up of the detail.
The entire order:  Newborn-Wrap Baby Moccasins (partially beaded), Fully beaded Girl's moccasins in size 12, 2 pairs of mini moccasins.  All in a Shoshone Design.  

Newborn Baby Moccasins for Violet...

I was asked to make some newborn sized baby moccasins for a special new niece.  Since her name is Violet, I just knew they had to be purple!  I think they turned out extra cute and will look adorable on those itty bitty feet!

Busy Busy...

I've been busy working on these little girls moccasins.  They are fully beaded and are made to match her cute little pink Jingle dress.  I love this design.  It looks like a star quilt block.  Very striking.  The purple and pink are as girly as can be.  So cute!
Here are the leggings to match.  I appliqu├ęd the design together with satin fabrics and sewed them to a lavender cotton.  They zip up in the front.  Love the colors together and how they coordinate with the itty bitty moccasins!
  One last shot of the moccasins.

Beaded Baby Moccasins

Baby boy fully-beaded moccasins.  Size 3-ish.  Shoshone design with custom colors.  Sewn onto white deer hide.  I made these purposely big, but included a "cinch-tie" around the ankle to ensure that they fit the little guy's feet;0)  Now he can wear them a while longer.

Newborn sized partially beaded baby moccasins on white deer hide.  Cute for a baby boy or a girl!

Little Girl's Jingle Dress

Here's a Girl's Jingle Dress I just finished for a little girl.  It is a size 5T.  It comes with matching handkerchief and leggings.  I have made this purple butterfly dress a few times now, but this time I wanted to change it up with the butterfly band on the waist and the butterfly sleeves.  It coordinated really well; I especially love how the turquoise breaks up the patterns.  Here's a closeup:

I got to create these special moccasins for a customer in Canada. Here is the complete order:

These colors are a bit more traditional:
I love the sparkle of the dark blue.
