If you prefer, you could make the bottoms of the booties out of leather instead of felt. This may be a good idea if your baby is actually walking on them, as leather will hold up much better than felt. Make your own pattern.
Making simple booties only requires two pattern pieces, the upper and the sole. The upper pattern piece will be a rounded "v" shape and the sole will simply be the shape of the outline of your babies foot with quarter inch of seam allowance added all the way around the outside.
The upper pattern piece is the most difficult to make yourself but can be done rather easily. The general shape of the piece is a "v," but with the bottom very round, as it will be the toe of your shoe, and the sides as tall as you want the shoe. The two tops of the "v" will be very flat, as you will sew them together to make the back of the shoe. Begin by measuring around the outside of your babies foot. This length, plus an inch for seam allowance, will be the length of the outside of the "v," from the top, down to the bottom, and up to the other side of the top.
The opening of the "v" does not need to be very wide, only a few inches at its widest. Remember that the width of each side of the "v" will determine the height of the sides of your shoe, so that measurement is up to you. Cut the pattern pieces out.
Once you have cut them out, position them so they both fit on your felt. Then pin each pattern piece onto the felt before cutting each piece out. Remember that you will need two of each pattern piece to make a pair of booties. However, they each need to be the opposite of the other, so that you have a left and right bootie.
To avoid confusion, cut out one set of felt pieces the upper and the sole and then flip both pattern pieces over and cut out a second, opposite, set. Keep the sets together at all times, or mark them lightly, so the pieces don't get swapped. Felt can be a hard fabric to cut cleanly. Make sure you are using good sewing shears to cut out your pattern pieces, so that the edges of the booties look nice and neat.
Pin the upper to the sole of your booties along the front edge. You basically want to attach the two pieces together only at the toe of the bootie. Once you have it pinned, sew the two pieces together. Remember to line up your upper and your sole piece well. The top and the bottom of the toe section of each piece should be the same shape, so they should match up nicely. If their shapes are slightly off, trim one to match the other. You can either sew your shoes with a sewing machine or by hand.
However, because the shoes are so small, you might consider sewing them by hand with a decorative stitch. Consider using a buttonhole stitch around the outside with a contrasting color of thread. Sew the back of each bootie together, forming the heel. Take the two flat edges that were the top of the "v" of your upper and overlap them slightly, but keep them parallel.
Pin them together and then sew along the overlap, so the outside edge is contained inside your stitches. This will round the back of your shoe and open up the middle of the shoe where your babies foot will be inserted. The easiest way to contain the exposed edge on the back of the shoe is to use a wide zig-zag stitch on your sewing machine or to sew the back by hand.
Either way, you should make sure that your stitches are neat and sturdy. Attach the rest of the upper and sole. Pin the pieces together all around the edge, except around the front, where you have already sewed them together.
Once pinned, sew around the edge using the same stitch as you used on the front, making sure that your stitches are kept as close to the edge as possible. Finish up your little booties by adding any decorations or reinforcements you like. It may be nice to reinforce the upper edge of the sides of the shoes with a simple blanket stitch, or you could add a few stitches to the center point of the "v," in order to reinforce a spot that might split due to pressure.
There are endless ways to decorate these little shoes. Add some embroidery or other types of embellishment, anything that will give your little baby shoes a little decorative interest. Put the booties on your baby! They should fit your babies feet perfectly, as they were made specifically for him or her. Pick out fabric for your baby shoes.
Purchase fabrics that will hold up to the demands of being on their feet. However, avoid synthetic fibers, as they will not let your baby's feet breathe. It is a good idea to get several types of fabric for this project. The soles can be made from a bonded fleece, soft leather, or other heavy material, while the uppers can be made from any light weight fabric. You will also need to use scissors and a sewing machine, or a needle and thread, as well as an iron, to finish this project.
Make a shoe pattern. Making cloth baby shoes requires three pattern pieces, the top, the heel, and the sole. Begin by making the pattern piece for the sole. Trace your babies foot but then round out the front half, around the toes, so that the pattern piece is symmetrical from side to side. For the top piece, copy the front half of your sole piece, making a straight line across what would be you babies arch.
The heel is the hardest piece to make. The heel is basically a rectangle, with one of the long sides slightly curved out and one end of the short sides pulled in a bit because of the curve. Measure around the back of the sole pattern piece, from where the arch starts, around the back, and around to where the arch starts on the other side.
This will be the measurement of both long sides, although you will need to give a slight curve to one of them. The width of the piece will be determined by how high you want the side of the shoe, so that's up to you. It may be easiest to find an existing pattern online, download it, and then print it out. This is especially true if you have had no experience making sewing patterns in the past.
Cut out the pattern pieces, then pin them onto your fabric. For each shoe you will need one sole piece, two top pieces, and two heal pieces. The second top and heel pieces will form the lining the lining of the shoes.
