I am going to try to google for a picture of the traditional black shoes, but wondered if there is another style that is traditional for a Chinese baby shoe?
I want to do a cake for Labor Day and am a bit clueless where to start. I have stellarstarshild's baby converse pattern, but is there a better one to use?
Well I am not quite sure what a pair of traditional black shoes looks like but I think a better template regardless, would be one of the baby bootie patterns. Here's a link to a list of a few of them. http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-589647.html
When I envision traditional Asian baby shoes my mind jumps to the Mary Jane style (but I don't know if that is a traditional shoe style or an Americanized version of shoes from Asia). I love that pattern and used it myself for a pair of booties.
What search term are you using to google? I tried Asian Baby Shoes and came up with this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8346343 - this is a far different style, it's called "Kimono" style so of course would probably only be appropriate for a Japanese design.
Here's the mary-jane shape I meant, in an Asian "decorative shoe" http://www.forgottenshanghai.com/silbrocbabsh.html
Hey- thanks so much! Now I have all kinds of cute patterns- I might just have to open a shoe store!
I'll be sure to post my pic when I'm done.
You're welcome and good luck!
