Learn how to make baby shoes with a free leather baby shoes PDF sewing pattern. This baby sewing project is great for a handmade gift.
My favorite gift to make for baby showers or baby gifts are leather baby shoes. I can sew a pair in about 30 minutes so I can always find time to put some together.
My favorite fabric to use for leather baby shoes is real leather that is about 3 to 4 oz. per square feet or a 1.2-1.6 mm thickness.
– faux leather – 1/4 inch elastic – pen or a pencil – scissors – clips – sewing machine
Trace the pattern pieces onto the back of the leather. Transfer the marks from each pattern piece. Make sure to mirror the bottom piece so that they’re opposite.
Carefully cut out all of the pattern pieces from the leather. Fold the top long edge of the back pieces over 1/2 inch and clip in place.
Sew 1/8 from the cut edge to secure the fold. Back stitch when you start and when you stop. Clip the top casing on the top piece lining up the marks. Both pieces should be facing up.
Sew along each long side of the top casing. Back stitch when you start and when you stop.
