As you can see, needle goes diagonally a bit. This is because of the different lengths between the sole and the vamp. Actually this difference in length makes the sole curved.

Sewing Tips – smashing the thread | First Baby Shoes

Sewing Tips for shoe making.

You have just sewn two parts together. Great! You worry that the thread will get loose? No worries, it won’t. To make the ending more secure, we advise you to smash the thread at the end of sewing. It helps thread to fix shoe parts more tightly. This is really easy to do. You just need to press the thread ends strongly with your fingers or punch them using hummer for example . After smashing the thread, it gets more frictional resistance and it won’t get loose for sure.

Here are photos presenting how to smash the thread and how it looks like after smashing it.

Dressing inspirations |First Baby Shoes

Do you let your kids wear what they like?

It is said that letting kids choose their own clothes helps foster their independence, gain a sense of their own style, and allows them to learn how to match colors and patterns.

No matter how much thought you put into what you purchase, kids will find a way to put their own over-the-top stamp on their clothes. You may need to just smile at their unique style and know you’re building their self-esteem.

Here are some dressing ideas from First Baby Shoes. You may try them before your kid starts to pick out his own clothes.

Buying first baby shoes |First Baby Shoes

Once your child takes first steps, it is time to buy him a first pair of shoes. What kind of shoes should you choose? What should you pay attention to?

First, flexibility. Make sure you can bend and twist them every which way. First shoes cannot be stiff.

Second, Breathability. Soft leather is the best. Avoid stiff leather shoes, which can hinder foot development. Synthetic materials, which don’t breath, are not good as well.

Roominess. Make the thumb test. You should be able to fit your thumb in between your baby’s biggest toe and the end of the shoe. You need to press down on it from the outside while your child is wearing it. And the first shoes should also pass the pinch test — at the shoe’s widest point, you want to be able to grasp a bit of its material between your fingers.

It is good to choose shoes with shoelaces as they keep feet much better than Velcro. Make sure shoelaces are long enough to tie into double knots, so they won’t come undone.

Shoe making kit “First Baby Shoes” gives everyone a chance to create a FIRST pair of BABY SHOES. Our shoes are made of natural leather and have flexible soles. They are designed to protect tiny tootsies.
