Seems many are now making their own soft sole baby shoes.

I have made my own for my son....

http://www.babiesonline.com/imagegallery/gallery_image.asp?p=http://images.babiesonline.com%2Fbabies%2Fm%2Fmeant2b%2FGp9afupkrbxcoeof%2Ejpg&be=m/meant2b

My question is, has anyone tried to make tall boots out of these patterns?

A friend of mine has young girls, and hates putting snowsuits on them to go shopping, because they get too hot.  Her problem is, if she doesn't put their snow pants on, their pants ride up, exposing their bare legs. 

I would like to try to modify the basic pattern so that it is still soft and flexible, but so that the tongue and back extends up the child's leg, to be worn under their pants.

Has anyone tried this?  Any success or tips?

I hope to find time soon to experiment.

one option is this  http://www.makethemyourself.com/boot.html    but it is only $8

or maybe http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/Booties.html  and alter the top piece, kinda like the regular shoes, but looking at the boots from robeeze it looks like you would need 2 top pieces....

good luck
I only make the regular ones too
