They were huge. Probably a child's size 4-5. So, with a few tries, I changed the patterns to a few different, smaller sizes. I have to admit, I was actually dreaming about all of the possibilities with this pattern: animals, people, robots, personalized, buttons, etc. I made 10 pairs so far today.
This pattern is deceptively simple. What I love about it is that there is no chances of missing something when you are sewing. I cannot tell you how many pairs of baby booties I have thrown out or seam ripped apart because of missing a small spot when sewing. I don't really like getting the top to match up with the bottom and sewing in a circle isn't all that easy. These have 2 straight seams. You can top stitch the entire pattern, no turning. Awesome!
Elephants were my first try, mostly due to the 2 yards of grey fleece I have lying around. This is actually pair 2. Pair 1 looked more like mice. I'm just going to cut the trunk off and put on some whiskers. Then they will be mice. That would be so cute with a little Cinderella inspired night gown.
I made this set with a butterfly and a flower. I only made these single thickness because I thought that Kamille would love them for dress up with one of her fairy costumes.
I also made monkeys. I wanted to show a girl and boy version. I really love to add a little extra touch on all of my girl things. I had these weird zebra print flowers lying around and they really went well.
Then, I wanted to see if I could use something other than fleece or felt. Yes, this pattern is great if you fuse regular fabric onto felt and then top stitch together. I came up with these really adorable 1st birthday shoes. I haven't finished with this yet. I'm thinking monograms and maybe mommy & daddy's pics for really little babies.
My finale were these totally adorable pixie toes. I sewed a ribbon for the bow right into the seam in the back. Sew simple :).
