Cloth Baby Shoes

My sister’s tutorial for Cloth Baby Shoes has been around forever, but I only just recently had the perfect reason to make them.

Let me just say that it is a fabuloo tutoriloo!  Remember when you just started sewing and every little project made you feel so good?  This is what these shoes did for me.


It’s a feeling that I miss since when I’m designing my own stuff there are so many failures before a success.

The ruffle gives them a little bit of a house slipper look.

And I sewed lines across the bottom so they look like treads.

Hope they make a baby happy!

    These are adorable! I think the ruffle is a nice touch. I’m going to have to give these a try for my little one on the way. 🙂

    Adorable photos! (and shoes!) I know what you mean about having a successful sewing project from the get-go. I just had one of my own. An Oliver and S pattern. 🙂

    I had a pair of leather outer and sheepskin inner sent all the way from New Zealand to UK for my son when little, they are so cute and warm, i love the fabric ones. Hope they sell well.

    between the miso toe and the boynton pig, you have got very, very silly lately.

    I heartily approve! 😀

      I sure was hoping that someone would enjoy the silliness. 🙂 The pig was just perfect since he matched the shoes so well. I had to dig him out of my son’s bed.

    Those shoes are adorable and I love the ruffle! If you give those away to a baby, you’re going to have to make another pair for your son’s pig!

      Funny, Beth! I did give them away, but not before I was asked multiple times if they could put the shoes back on the pig. 🙂 Maybe a pair of boy pig shoes are in order. 🙂
