These booties are soft and sweet! They keep their shape very well.
They are easy to make - even for beginners! Booties can be made with a kitty face and ears or a plain style. The booties have a high back which helps them to stay on baby's feet. The pattern includes two cutting lines for the back - an extremely high back like the charcoal kitty photographed on page 6, or a regular high back like the pink kitty shown above. The top of the bootie is one piece - that includes the strap and high back. Felt is used for the lining and outside of the kitty booties and also the red plain booties photographed on page 6 (acrylic or wool felt can be used - wool felt was used for sample booties). For the tan booties photographed on page 6, fabric is used for the outside and felt is used for the lining. Different color felt rectangles or felt/fabric rectangles are fused together. Then the top and sole shapes are cut out and stitched. Booties can be made from a single piece of felt, eliminating the fusible web, but they won't be as sturdy. Booties are tied with 1/4" to 5/8" ribbon.
This ten page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, a materials list, instructions written in English, and step-by-step photographs. Booties will fit babies from newborn to approximately 14 months. Optional instructions are given to put a non-skid sole on booties for babies that are walking.
