Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Below are step-by-step instructions from Lynn Roberts (see her blog at on how to make these insanely cute baby booties. As she points out,
the pattern can also be adapted for great grown-up slipper booties!


Here is the basic pattern to start with:


Enlarge to whatever size you wish, just measure the length of baby's (or Mama's ) foot.


Cut 4 boot pieces and 2 sole pieces as shown. Now do the same for the lining.


The easiest way to do this is to lay your fabric right sides together, and then pin and cut out together.


Pin and stitch the sides of each boot (right sides together).


And then stitch the boot to the sole as shown. Don't forget to mark the front and back center points on the soles - it makes it a lot easier to position correctly.


Now turn under and press a small hem at the top of each boot and its lining.


Now slot the lining into its boot with wrong sides together.


Finish off with a decorative stitch to close. You're done!

The top of the boot cut out, looks larger then the sole cut out. How do I get the sole to match the upper boot part? My top boot is so much larger.
