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!

Oh how cute and simple! I'm going to whip several pairs of these for a new baby soon to arrive in our family!

So cute. Do you find they slide off at all? If so, it would be quite easy to attach a little ribbon tie at back and bring it around front to hold onto foot.
Thanks for sharing this lovely idea with us....might make some for the Options Pregnancy Centre!!

I think some sort of casing in the ankle area for some elastic would come in handy, especially for babies and toddlers who tend to pull things off of their feet!
