Sewing Pattern for Baby Wool Felt Shoes, Tutorial PDF Digital Download

Want to be kind to the earth? Or maybe you want to tailor a special pair of slippers for yourself or as a gift? This pattern will help you turn old clothes into a unique pair of slippers! I developed these patterns myself and sold over 5000 pairs of slippers. Now you can make this popular design yourself in just a couple of hours!

Style: low-topped slipper shoes (with or without leather heel and toe caps, as shown in the photos)

Difficulty: This is a pattern of moderate difficulty for those with some sewing experience, however, this design is a bit easier than my high-topped "Slipper Socks".

Here are the US sizes included in this pattern:
Baby 2.5, sole length: 4.00 inches (10 cm) (approx. 0-12 months)
Baby 4, sole length: 4.50 inches (11.5 cm) (approx 6-18 months)
Baby 5.5, sole length: 5.00 inches (12.5 cm) (approx 12-24 month)

- detailed instructions on the best type of wool sweater to use
- how to felt your wool sweater
- how to find and choose suede leather for the soles
- detailed instructions and photos on how to sew the slippers (11 pages)
