lillies toes: a tutorial

here is a tutorial of how I made these cute little shoes and if you not a great sewer I can make them for you :)


                               
this is what they look like when finished little toes peeking out


Updated here is the pattern for you this is size 6-12months but you could always go bigger or smaller :) hope you enjoy


the pattern for 6-12 months


cut your piece mine were already together but there is four pieces of each


I sewed each top piece together around the curve trying to show you here :)



after that you are going to take the same pieces and place the end pieces together ( which will be the heel part) and sew across to make the top part of the shoe


They will look like this


before sewing the soles on, I took the top and sewed a slip stitch were the little toes go to make one complete shoe (if this doesn't make sense ask me i'll put up more pictures if you need or anything :) )


 After that sew the top of the shoe on to the bottom on the inside fabric like soo..



 place the last piece of the shoe the outersole on top right side in so the outside looks like so sorry super blurry, so sew around leaving a gap to flip right side out


like so and then after you flip right side out sew by hand a slip stitch close and there you go cute lil shoes for any little girl in your life

Go paint those little toes
