About the Designer...
I am from Central Jersey. I am a stay at home mom to three boys, Chris (19), Joey(7), and Brian (5). I have been happily married for the past 8 years. I make crocheted baby and toddler shoes and hats. I also make blankets and anything that I can get a pattern for. I started crocheting 28 years ago. My late grandmother taught me and I have been hooked ever since. I found Etsy and it help me to create Heather's Hobbies. I have been in business for my self for the past 5 years. I just can't see me doing any other job. I love it that much.

Review...
Little baby feet need adorable baby shoes for all those cute outfits, right? Of course they do! Heather's Hobbies has a pair or two you'll want to get your hands on. She crochets the most beautiful baby shoes I've ever seen, along with lots of other crocheted clothing and accessories for the whole family. You definitely don't want to miss this shop!
When I received these Wool Little button Loafers, I couldn't believe how stinkin' cute they were! These tiny little baby shoes are made from 100% Peruvian Highland Wool that is super soft instead of itchy like you might think. Instead they're super cozy and comfy for little feet! The sole features 2 crocheted layers, and are of course very flexible for infant feet. They seem like they would have a good fit around the heel just by looking at how it curves inward at the top.
I absolutely adore the design of these loafers, and all the little details. The buttons give these shoes extra personality, and the white wool gives them even more. You can undo a button to help get the shoes on baby's feet if needed too. These would be a perfect baby shower gift, and would certainly be a highlight of the party! Heather is clearly very talented, and does an amazing job with every detail. Any mom would be so excited to have their baby wear a pair of baby shoes from Heather's Hobbies!

Heather has a variety of colors and types of yarn for all her shoes. Many of them are made using organic yarns too! Many of her shoes also go up to a size 6, so many styles will fit up to a young toddler. You can also find beautiful crocheted baby sweaters, baby hats/beanies, adult beanies, bags, totes, and more.

Here are a few of my favorite items at Heather's Hobbies!
