I made Leo some shoes! YAY! July 2008

So, the girls over at April 08 were making these and I thought that they looked simple enough. I decided to try them. They're styled after 'robeez' and they fit great! I couldn't believe how simple they were either. I made them out of fleece, cause that's what I have handy...but apparently purse leather is perfect for this kind of shoe. I'm gonna go to Value Village and scope out some soft leather purses.

Here's Leo, partially undressed so he could model, wearing his new slipper. It fits great and was ridiculously easy to make.

WOOT! I used the pattern found here: http://family-centered.com/needleworks/soft-baby-shoes/

Have at it, girls! Anyone can make these...and they're much cheaper to make than to spend $30 on the real thing!

AGGHHH!!! Why'd you post this? Now I have to make them! Wink

I'm already in the middle of a dress for dd and just picked up some fabric yesterday for my christmas present to weston--a silky+other textured taggy blanky (very small one for a lovey). I don't have time for all my sewing projects! Smile

Heidi and others

if you don't want to deal with the buttonhole feature, which I don't like there is another pattern that is a little easier, or just use a non fraying fabric, and you can just cut it

same idea, just slightly different and then you can make them reversible

these footies are the cutest Smile

I didn't use the button hole thingy on mine either... I just used a hole punch with a non fraying fabric!
