Hi! Does anyone have a child in size 11 shoes..a five year old (approx)
I need to know how many inches long the foot is. I'm trying to knit a
pair of slipper, sight unseen.
Thanks

If you have a JC Penney catalog around, it should have a chart to
measure a child's foot to show what size the child would take.  I don't
have any around any more because I shop online.

What I am sewing for Christmas
Before I sew for friends and family, I busy myself with sewing doll
clothes for charities. This year I am up to about 19 dolls, which were
rescued from thrift shops, cleaned up until they look like new and then
given a wardrobe, quilt and pillow. It really is lots of fun and so
rewarding.   If you want to see any pictures taken last year, etc., you
can visit my web site (see below), which my brother encouraged me to
create so that others might be interested in doing something similar.

What a fantastic idea! They look so nice and I don't think a single little
girl would turn their noses up at those sweet "new to them" babies! I may
"borrow" your idea and do the same thing next Christmas.

My dad does the same thing with old bikes he rescues from the trash. He
cleans them up, repaints them and puts new tires on. If one bike is too
rough, he can still find a way to use something on another. Then he takes
them down to the local charities for distribution. It makes him especially
happy when he sees one of his refurbs being ridden by a grinning kid.

Re: foot size
Well, according to the Penney's catalog, a size 11 is 6 11/16" long. Hope
this helps.

Re: foot size
Well, my 4 year old is also in size 11.  And her foot seems to match JC
Penney.  Her foot measures just under 7",   6 3/4 to be exact.  Happy
knitting!
