Bootie-licious Conversation Hearts

Am I a total craft nerd for being beyond excited to have a week of Valentine's themed crafts? Oh well, I'll just have to hope everyone who reads this is too.  The hardest thing has been choosing what to show each day, but I thought I'd start things off with these little babies.   Once again, my scrap fabric bin provided the materials.
I hand embroidered the little sayings on the hearts with embroidery floss and attached the backs of the hearts when I pressed in my snap closures on the shoes and then stitched the front hearts to them.  It was really easy to put everything together and since I used fleece, I didn't have to finish the edges or line them, which made it soooo simple.
The shoe pattern I created is just 3 pieces and minimal assembly.  It worked so well & was so fast to make, I decided to make another pair with some flannel & knit scraps.  I love how a change of fabrics creates a different look.  A great Valentine's treat for little feet!
