I purchased a new book recently and have already made and given away the first project from it. I don't want to plagiarize so I will not post the instructions to the project but I will show you my pictures and you can see why I recommend this book. It's called "Gifts For Baby" by Catherine Woram and has 30 simple projects that are just adorable. These little Mini Mary Janes, took me several hours but I couldn't give you an exact time because of the amount of interruptions I deal with. I will say it took longer than I expected, but it was not so long that I am discouraged from doing it again. I am confident that I will be faster then next go-round.
