The Purl Bee Pattern
Enough fabric to cut 4 pieces of each pattern piece
Pinking shears (optional)
2" of 1/4"elastic
4 1/4" buttons
Sewing machine, thread, scissors, hand needle, pins, iron
To start with you need to add a
seam allowance to the straight side of the upper section of The Purl Bee pattern (as in the photo below).
Next, cut 4 of each of the pattern pieces (2 from a contrasting fabric, 2 from a main fabric if you are doing that). You should have 4 upper sections and 4 foot pieces.
Turn the shoes right side out. Place one of the 1" pieces of elastic on the inside of the shoe then line up a button on the outside of the shoe on the mark from the pattern and hand sew the button to the shoe, taking care to go through the elastic. Repeat the same process for the other side of the bootie, then again for the other shoe.
Now just sit back and admire your handiwork.
