I love these, I love the name Everleigh and I would love a pattern.  I have a 5 and 2 year old and these would be unbelievably cute for Christmas Eve/Christmas Morning!

Ahhh! I can't get my scanner to work. The best I can do is take a pic and upload it. I'll post it as a picture. You'll need to trace a shoe, and use that as a basis for how large you'll need it to be. Then enlarge the pattern, making sure that the shoe fits inside the seam allowances.



Directions.
Cut eight of shoe upper, 2 for outer of each shoe and 2 for lining of each shoe.
 Cut 4 of sole, 1 for outer sole and 1 for inner sole cut inner sole on dotted line.
Use medium weight interfacing on two of each shoe upper, and outer soles.
Use heavy weight interfacing on inner sole.

Do ant embellishing on sides of shoes before sewing together.
Sew right sides together, on dotted lines of shoe uppers.

Turn outer shoe upper right side out, pin top of shoe right sides together and sew around top.

Right sides of outer shoe inside, pin to lower sole and sew. matching d.

Zigzag stitch around inner sole to attach heavy interfacing, place in shoe and sew to seam allowance using whip stitch.

Blanket stitch around opening in upper.

Punch hole where marked on upper, and lace ribbon or lace through holes and tie.
Sew bells to toes.

*hint, I used a drinking straw and small screwdriver to turn the toes. then grabbed it with pliers and pulled through.

Good luck!
