A while back I got my hands on the pattern for these adorable shoes (available for sale at Winter Peach--only $4.50 right now!)
They're sweet, comfy little shoes. Olivia and I have been loving this pair on her for months now.
Partly because it's been so cold all winter and party because these little shoes are white, I haven't really let Olivia wear them outside to play. But now that it's warmer (and because her feet are growing and she'll need a new pair soon anyway) I figured she might as well get as much use out of them as possible.
So I've been letting her wear them around more--outside and out on errands and things. But... they're a little slippery. Not so great for a kid who's just starting to run. We've had a few tears from nasty bonks already.
Under The Sycamore a while back (I'd link to the specific post, but I honestly wouldn't even know how to search for it since she just mentioned it in passing).
Basically, I just drew some circles on the bottom
of the shoes with hot glue.
So when she went down for her second nap (don't too be jealous that she usually still takes two) I tried again, this time making circles and smooshed the glue down into the shoe more. Hopefully she won't be able to pull the glue off this time. Although I feel pretty confident that she won't be able to since I tried and wasn't able to pull it off.
So now she has some cheap, easy tread
on the bottom of her cute little shoes.
Slippery linoleum, here we come.
