Yes, post the pictures. Sure, yeah, I can send my wee guy over he'd love to try on all the great & rakish stuff you sew ... you are in Australia? Bit of a swim, better pack some snacks and a wet suit, or?

Post your little one over and we'll do a photo shoot!

Don't tempt me! Tongue She has been quite the testy one lately...cutting a molar makes for a cranky 19mo old. If you see a box arrive on your doorstep with holes poked in the sides...then I took you up on your offer. Wink

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

Hi!
Ill try and make the tute brief, if I can,
I have the pattern scanned, but I cant make it do anything, Ill keep working on it
(technical computer Grumble!)

crosses fingers that this works

 Ok, I wanted the seams hidden and the elastic inside so it wouldnt chafe small feet,
if you want, you could just use one layer of fabric and make a casing for the elastic.

Cut 4 of each piece


Stitch one upper to a lining upper, leaving a hole in the middle of the seam to turn inside out


Zigzag elastic across the top of the wrong side of the outer upper




Fold the pieces in half, stitch along the back seam



Sew the soles to the corrosponding uppers,
I tend to do a tack stitch at one end to anchor the fabric, then start at the other end and sew right around.





Turn inside out through hole, and tuck lining inside outer



Tuck in opening, and top stitch around top,


Voila!
Find cute child to model



Hope that was useful!



Hints!
Measure the elasic to suit your own child.
A stretch stitch needle will work better than an ordinary needle. (for us who dont own a serger!)
Puff paint drawn on the bottom, will make these nonslip
(see my knotty slippers for explanation)
Feed each peice into your machine straight after the other, saves lots of time and cotton.


**** to make reversable***
when you have finished, zigzag over the elastic stitching to hold both layers of fabric together
tried it last night, works a treat!

Omg that's too funny. I have a pair sitting here that my friend asked me to make. They have toronto maple leafs on them, her baby is growing out of them and wanted a bigger pair. I see what you mean about the bib part. Yours are super adorable!!!

What a cute idea.

I had some of these...but the fabric was very "winnie the pooh, rattles", traditional baby prints.

These rock with a not so stereotypical fabric. Maybe i'm just partial cuz I love black n' hot pink together.

Either way, super cute!!!
