“A little bit tricky but well worth the”
These sneakers are soft and sweet! They keep their shape very well. Shoes will look great on a boy or a girl! They are easy to make! Wool or acrylic felt is fused to fabric using a double sided fusible web. Cotton home decorator fabric is used for the outside of the sample shoes. It has an interesting texture that looks like canvas but almost any type of fabric will work well. Shoes have ribbon ties. Bias tape is sewn around the inside edge of the shoe tops and across the top of the shoe tongues. The tongues are made separately and then sewn into the shoes. They open out just like a regular pair of sneakers so you can easily slide baby’s feet inside the shoes, then tuck in the tongues and tie the ribbons for a secure fit.
Sneakers will fit babies from newborn to approximately 16 months. Five sizes of shoes are included in pattern - lengths of finished soles are 4”, 4.25”, 4.5”, 4.75” and 5”. Optional instructions are given to put a non-skid sole on shoes for babies that are walking.
-Fabric for tops and soles of shoes - amount needed is below (cotton home decorator fabric was used for sample shoes)
-Wool felt for tops and soles of shoes - color that coordinates with fabric - amount needed is below (felt does not have to be 100% wool - it can be a blend – acrylic felt can be used but wool felt works best)
-Double sided iron-on fusible web - amount needed is below (sample shoes were made with Lite Steam-A- Seam 2 Fusible Web by The Warm Company but any fusible web for fabric will work)
-Narrow double fold bias tape – 1 yard
-1/8” to 5/8” ribbon – 1 1/8 yard
-Sewing thread – color that coordinates with fabric & bias tape
