Baby shoes are a simple way to add a handmade touch to a baby shower gift. If you have a basic understanding of knitting stitches, you can knit up a pair of baby shoes in an afternoon. Make several in a variety of colours and keep them on hand in case you have an emergency baby gift you need to give or donate them to a local hospital or children’s charity organization. Your handmade efforts will be appreciated either way.
