Its a girl!
My cousin is having a baby girl, and I seriously can’t wait to spoil her. This past weekend was her baby shower and auntie-to-be got her some dope baby gear (Did you know they have baby wipes heaters now? blew my mind). Naturally I didn’t stop there I had to make her something a little less ordinary, gold and adorable. So I made her these….
GOLD BABY MOCCASSIN BOOTIES
This is my cuuuutest DIY, yet.
This DIY is very easy, and you can hand sew.
Here is what you will need:
Baby Booties Pattern
12″ x 12″ Pleather Fabric
Rotary Hole Puncher
Pen or Marker
I had to hand draw my own pattern, but you don’t! You can print this pattern and use for your baby booties. The pattern piece is for a size 1 bootie. Just print larger for larger sizes!
Start by cutting the bootie pattern and trace it twice on the back side of your fabric (make sure to flip over the sole piece for the right side bootie).
Now cut your pieces, and set the extra fabric aside.
Using the rotary hole puncher, cut the marked circles on the heel piece and cut the two lines on the front piece.
Sew the heel piece with the sole piece (leather facing in).
Use binder clips or clothespins to hold the fabric together if needed. Make sure to position the piece so it is even. Sew 1/8″ from edge to secure.
Now sew the front piece on to the sole piece, over lapping into the heel piece at each end.
Now flip your bootie inside out, and lace them up!
You can leave them as is, or do as I did and make them Moccasin Baby Booties.
Using extra fabric cut out two 1″ x 2″ pieces, then cut 1″ slices across to create fringe for that moccasin look. Now simply glue the pieces (fringe down) across the front part of your booties.
Aren’t they adorable!!!
