Toms-Inspired Baby and Toddler Shoes - FREE pattern and tutorial

[UPDATE – sadly this website and pattern have disappeared. Just gone, the website is no more. We hate it when that happens, but sadly it’s outside of our control. You may find an alternative you like herekids and baby shoes sewing patterns.]

This is the first pair of shoes Sew Modern Kids has shared with you and aren’t they adorable!

These baby and toddler shoes are really comfortable and by sewing a little elastic in the back and adding a Velcro strap this all helps to keep baby’s foot snug inside.

Featuring some of the characteristics of those cute little TOMS, yet personal to the little toes inside. You can also add a little name tag to the back which adds a beautiful touch to a simple design.

The standard baby and toddler sizes are FREE to download with instructions on how to grade the pattern up or down in size. Or if you prefer you can pay for a ready graded pattern in all available sizes.

And an absolute great suggestion from this fantastic designer that you must listen to is: make both of your shoes at the same time, assembly-line style. Because these shoes are so tiny, it’s important that your seam allowance is exactly the same for both shoes. If you make one shoe, and then the other – you risk slight differences, which could add up and result in a difference in size.

This article has been our most popular EVER article on our website week in and week out since we started Sew Modern Kids. The only other article that comes close to it some weeks is the Reversible Baby Romper Pattern – newborn to 6 years.
