Have you ever tried to put shoes onto babies feet?  It almost seems like they have no bones in their feet and they always curl their toes in.  

Solution:  Super soft suede baby moccasins!  

You can slide those baby feet in these like butter!  The flap also opens wide to allow you to almost seat their feet into the sole with out trying to slip their boneless, curled toed feet through a tiny opening.

Suede- thick suede is good for this project
Contact cement
Thread- heavy duty nylon
Sewing machine (you could sew this by hand..but..I didn't and probably wouldn't)

Step 1: Make a Pattern

Take a shoe that fits your babies feet or is little larger and lay it onto a piece of paper.  Starting with the front of the shoe find a starting place that is about between the big toe and second in command.  As you roll the shoe around to it's heel mark out the outline of it top and bottom.  Add about a 1/4" for seam allowance around the bottom.  Add a flap to your pattern.

Do the same with the sole.
<p>Ridiculously Cute! Love them</p>
<p>Love them! Very neatly made and very cute!</p>
These are great. I was working on making something similar to this, but I like the shape you went with. I might have to rethink some stuff and try again.
i need to make these.. but in pakistan coloured felt is not available. 2ndly i dont have a shoe size for 1yr old :(
the page on which u draw the baby's shoe .. is it an a4 paper?
Yes it's A4, but it doesn't really matter. If the baby is available you could draw around their foot on a piece of paper then add 1.5 cm or so. The shoes here are made of suede leather. You could also use smooth leather which don't get as dirty. Good luck and post a pic!
the problem is tht i don't have a baby or a shoe even. i am a home economics student
Excellent work! These little moccs are just darling!!!
Great.My son has very wide feet making shoe shopping difficult. This will definately help thanks.
The first pair I made were for my son (black and tan, not purple!) and they were a life saver. He wore them up until he was walking. The best thing about them is that they are so easy to put on. (Now I want some Harp's and Guinness!)
So cute! Great work.
