Here’s a fabulous pattern for some really beautiful soft and sweet shoes for your little baby. It’s a pattern for Baby Kimono Shoes that the designer says “keep their shape very well”.
The pattern is perfect for beginner sewers as they are easy to make, as you don’t have to make separate linings for the shoes or have a closure.
The designer used cotton batik fabric for the outside of the sample shoes, however, if you like you can use denim, linen, flannel etc. The designer used wool felt for the lining of the sample shoes, however, if you want you can use acrylic felt. A blanket stitch is embroidered around the top edges of the shoes. A diagram is included in the pattern for embroidering the blanket stitch.
These shoes will fit babies from newborn to approximately 14 months. There are four sizes of shoes and the length of the finished sole for the four pattern sizes are as follows:
Newborn to 6 months = 4.0″
6 to 9 months = 4.25″
9 to12 months = 4.5″
12 to 14 months = 4.75″.
If you have a baby that is walking the designer has also added optional instructions to put non-skid soles on the shoes.
