This little set is for a friend of my DD's.  Making these little shoes is addictive!  They're so easy and I love matching up bits of scrap fabric to make them.

Wow, I really like the shoes. Did you make the pattern yourself or can it be found somewhere? They really look like an awesome way to use up all the fabric scraps.

I love the little shoes, especially the ones with ducks...

I've tried a few since your last post, but mine don't look so professional as yours! I'd like to line the soles as well - do you have a secret for making this work?

This is the shoe pattern I use.  I've tried a few others but this one is the easiest.
http://www.poopockets.com/free/footies/footies.htm
To line them I cut 4 of everything (2 each of the lining and the outside fabric) and then follow the instructions.  The final part is placing the soles with wrong sides together, pin all around the edges (you will see that the same fabric ends up facing eachother), and then sew the soles to the top part.  I then trim the edges, zigzag (I don't have a serger) around the edge, turn inside out, and voila ... all done!  Lastly I also go around the inside seams with my thumb and finger pushing out the seams as far as they will go to get the shape right. 
I hope this helps.  Keep trying!  You'll get it right and then realize how easy it was!  Good luck.

The summer outfit is absolutely adorable. I would love to make some for my neighbor who does not have much money. Do you have a pattern for it that you would like to share?
