I was thinking about attempting this in the next couple of days.  I just made a pair for my son I would like to make a pair for his big brother to match. I'll let you know if i figure it out.

where do you buy the bonded fleece?  or do you just use heat-bond to do it your self?

My HP printer has the capability to reduce and enlarge and I use it for small patterns like this.  Check your printer manual for directions.  It's a little bit of trial and error for the right sizing but if you know the length you need you just measure the copy and adjust the percentage of the reduction or enlargement as necessary. If your printer won't do it go to a secretarial service and ask them to reduce or enlarge the pattern for you.

Hope this helps.

I found a free tutorial with a variation of sizes for the leather soled shoes and I thought i'd share.  even if you have already expanded the pattern using the printer maybe someone else can benefit from the link.
