Shoe covers

Come in, sit down and bask
take off your shoes is all we ask
Baby crawling

So now that my little monster is crawling (well scooting) all over the place I wanted people to take their shoes of when they are in my home. I didn't want to have to ask over and over again. So I knew a sign is what I needed. But my husband comes home for lunch, which actual time spent here is about 2o-25 mins. He told me he didn't want to have to take his shoes off for that short amount of time. So why not make shoe covers? It was pretty easy too. I think I will make some more to keep by door for people who don't want to take their shoes off.

I got this saying off line somewhere...can't find the site anymore. I added baby crawling

This is a pillowcase I used from another project

Then cut it in half

I then placed my husbands shoe inside at the seam and cut across the top

I created a casting and placed the elastic inside. I didn't measure the elastic, I was just trying things out. I cut a curve at one end. The first time I did this after the casting and the next time I did it before. I liked it better to cut the "c" curve after the casting was done.

finished first one

For the next one, I tried to go off my first one since I didn't measure. I took the other half and cut it down to 9 inches
Next I cut a curve, Stitched a seam closing the bottom and the side, then created my casting for the elastic

all done. the one on the left was done first.
