That would be an awesome mother's day craft for your preschool kids.  I know I would be totally floored if my kid came home with a cool craft like that!!!

"flopage but that can be easily fixed with some padding or thickish material sewn onto the inside"

Thanks for the flopage tip.  I don't know why I didn't think of that!!!  Sometimes the good ol' brain just doesn't work...

Thanks Hallow.  They are really durable, but I just realized something I need to change for the next pair I make.  I cut the edge with a pinking shear, I will continue to do that, but right up close to that edge I will need to run a little stitch line to make sure it doesn't fray further into the denim then I want (like through the seam).

I LOVE this.  Good job & Thanks for the tut!

I like the dress with the green belt.  It add great contrast and interest.

Wow!  It's super cute.

From your subject, I thought it was something completely different then it turned out to be!  In a very good way!!! 

I love all the details.

Cute! Cute! Cute!

I'm all into baby booties right now.  I love what you did.

Super cute!!!  I've been thinking about doing this to a pair of my old ones that I'm not really ready to toss yet...  Maybe I can breathe new life into them.

So, do you know if they stay on her feet when she walks in them?  I mean, do they flip flop a lot or do they stay on OK?

Those are pretty dang cute!  I love the funky fabric.  I think I"m going to copy you and use some fun fabric like you've done.  I'm going to stick with the leather on the bottom though because it makes them non-slip and my little guy is learning how to walk so he needs all the help he can get!  Smiley

Here's a question for you...  If all the pieces are doubled (cute pattern on the outside and pattern on the inside), how do you join your toe top pieces to the two sole pieces?  I hope this question makes sense...   Roll Eyes

Warning... this may not make sense!!!

It seems to me that the problem is that there isn't enough room in the sleeve opening.  I would lay the pattern piece down on a piece of paper.  Take out my ruler and draw a line from the hem to the spot that matches up with the shoulder seem.  Then cut that line.  Now open up that "slash" that you just made and spread it an inch or two, depending on how much more room you need.  Tape it to the paper below.  Now redraw the hem edge.  Cut the paper below so you can pick up your pattern and use it.  Now make a new sleeve using your new pattern.

Hope that helps...

I just saw this link in another post (the Marilyn Monroe dress post) and thought it might fit here... 


I think you can make this with your red & white fabric and it would look fantastic. 

It goes up to a size 22.  I wasn't sure if you need larger then that.  If so, maybe you can make a toile and then add inches.  This pattern looks petty simple so you could probably redraft if it necessary (depending on your sewing skills Smiley ).
