This is a downloadable PDF sewing e-pattern - This is not a finished pair of shoes. These shoes are soft and sweet! They can be made as a plain style (charcoal shoes) or with any combination of the appliqus (the red/white/blue/yellow pair have all the appliqus - front, side and toe). The shoes keep their shape very well. Fabric is fused to acrylic or wool felt (wool felt can be a blend). Edges of shoes may fray slightly but it adds to the charm of the design. If you would prefer to finish the edges, you can hand embroider the blanket stitch around the top edges and the appliqus as shown in the ivory shoes. The shoes are very easy to make - even for beginners! A plain pair of shoes without the appliqus will only take about thirty minutes to complete. Cotton, ultra suede and wool fabric were used for the outside of the sample shoes - almost any type of fabric can be used. This 10 page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, a materials list, instructions written in English, and step-by-step photographs. Optional instructions are given to put a non-skid sole on shoes for babies that are walking.
