Pattern Description:

These shoes are soft and sweet! They keep their shape very well. The same pattern is used for the tops and soles of shoes with monkey faces or plain shoes without monkey faces.

They are easy to make - even for beginners! Wool felt was used for the lining of the sample shoes. Cotton fabric was used for the outside. You can also use denim, linen, ultra suede, etc. Shoes have Velcro closures.

This eleven page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, a materials list, instructions written in English, and step-by-step color photographs. Optional instructions are given to put a non-skid sole on shoes for babies that are walking.

Copyrights protect this pattern from being reproduced in any media format to be resold. Permission is given for the pattern to be used to make and sell the finished shoes in limited quantities.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Shoes 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".


  • Wool felt for lining - light brown (for monkey shoes) or color that coordinates with fabric on outside of shoes (felt does not have to be 100% wool - it can be a blend)
  • Fabric for outside of shoes - brown (for tops and soles) and tan (for faces and ears) are needed for monkey shoes; print fabric of your choice is needed for plain shoes (cotton, ultra suede, denim, linen, etc.)
  • Iron-on fusible web
  • 1/2" to 5/8" Ribbon - 5/8 yard of grosgrain or satin
  • Velcro hook & loop fasteners - two 1/2" x 3/4" pieces
  • Sewing thread that matches fabric
  • Black embroidery floss or #12 black perle cotton (needed for monkey shoes only)
