These booties are soft and sweet! They keep their shape very well. They are easy to make - even for beginners! Booties can be made with a kitty face and ears or a plain style. The booties have a high back which helps them to stay on baby’s feet. The pattern includes two cutting lines for the back – an extremely high back like the charcoal kitty or a regular high back like the pink kitty. The top of the bootie is one piece - that includes the strap and high back. Felt or fabric is used for the outside of the booties. Felt is used for the lining (acrylic or wool felt can be used – wool felt was used for sample booties). Felt / fabric rectangles are fused together. Then the top and sole shapes are cut out and stitched. Booties can be made from a single piece of felt, eliminating the fusible web, but they won’t be as sturdy. Booties are tied with 1/4” to 1/2” ribbon.
Booties will fit babies from newborn to approximately 14 months. Four sizes of booties are included in pattern - lengths of finished soles are 4”, 4.25”, 4.5” and 4.75”. Additional instructions are given for enlarging the patterns for even more sizes. Optional instructions are given to put a non-skid sole on booties for babies that are walking.
There are six pages of instructions, four pages of patterns and seventeen photographs.
