As a recently bereaved pet owner, I would have loved for some one as kind and thoughtful as you to have taken the time and care to make me a little plushie of him, a little 'I hope you don't mind....etc I thought it might comfort you' and I'm sure your neighbour will be touched and grateful if she's anything like any of the PP's and me
It's a beautiful example too, and so very kind and thoughtful, you are lovely Smiley

Those are super adorable! Did you have any issues when sewing the leather? I'm just wondering because all the booties i've made are all cloth or felt but I want to make some with a leather sole for a little girl that's learning to walk. I know the leather will be more durable and a good intro to big kid shoes but I guess I'm just nervous about sewing with the leather because I've never used it before. What size needle did you use? Did you sew it by hand or machine?
These really are too cute though. You did a great job!

Personally I bondawebbed a cotton insole to the shiny/smooth side of the leather, then I used a leather needle in my little sewing machine ( sized 90/14 ), and did a small fairly tight zigzag all the way round quite close to the edge. It gets a bit fiddly where the fabric bunches up on the curves. I wasn't happy with the raw edges, though when turned right way out they didn't really show much, so I made another cotton insole which I bondawebbed (love that stuff) to the existing cotton, then roughly whipstitched round the edge (using the seam fabric on the felt upper, rather than try to stitch through the leather) and then more carefully button hole stitched by hand.
I just launched into it, making several mistakes and botched attempts. I'm assuming you're going for the suede side sole, it does thankfully provide a very forgiving base for mistakes, the needle holes kind of self seal to a degree  Wink The seam stiching was machined but the embroidery was hand done. HTH

Thanks for the lovely comments Smiley
