The Art of Ayrshire Needlework

3d. Baby Shoes

Description:
These shoes are hand made from kid leather. They were donated by a lady from Hurlford. Her mother had received them as a gift during World War II from an Icelandic farm worker when the donor's younger sister was born. With rationing such a gift would have been rare and precious at this time.
