Update: You can now view a video tutorial for these soft baby slippers here.
From what I’ve read, soft-soled shoes are the best for young babies (pre-walking age). I wanted some soft-soled shoes for my little daughter, but had a problem finding some that (a) were inexpensive and (b) didn’t fall off of her little feet! This pattern for Soft Baby Slippers is a pattern I’ve drafted and tested on my baby girl. They’re quick to sew, soft for little baby feet, and the elastic around the ankles helps them stay on! In this example, I’ve decorated them with ribbon, but the embellishment options for these are endless – use your own creativity! Materials:
- 1/4 yard printed minkee fabric (or flannel, polar fleece, cotton, pretty much anything would work!)
- 1/8 yard double-sided (“plush”) minkee fabric (or polar fleece)
- 1 package 1/8″ elastic
- ribbon or other embellishment
