Bought this 3-button boot pattern from that lady at ithinksew.com

Started them last night and finished this morning. They only went up to size 4 so I had to enlarge the pattern a bit to fit my chunky footed toddler. I always seem to have a hard time with turning and sewing corners, but other than that it was pretty simple. The outer is an apple green faux suede and the inner is a zebra print flannelette. The soles are buttercream vinyl.

My daughter seems to like them and they're easy to get on and off. Underneath the buttons is a velcro closure. I plan on making moccassins, rainboots and running shoes next from patterns purchased from the same site.

Onto the pics!

I love these boots, I think I will give this a try for the next baby gift I need. I also have a hard time with my corners on project I have made. But they still look beautiful...

These boots are adorable! I adore the color.

Most of all though, I like the material and that they are easy on/off. I work in a church nursery on Sundays and often young children come in with hard sneaker-type shoes. If I ever have to take them off an put them back on (say, changing a diaper) I always worry I am going to damage the little one's feet trying to cram them back into the shoe. I have also been reading that they are finding hard shoes on toddlers, if worn too often, can cause alignment problems in the legs and handicap the development of a normal stride. So cheers to your boots! Fashionable AND functional.
