Free Baby Bootie June 05 2014
This is an easy baby bootie pattern that we are offering for free. The video and blog post will help you succeed. It is a great way to use your scraps to make original foot fashion.
- Two coordinating fabrics about 1/6 yard. If fabric is 60" wide, you may get two sets
- 1/4" elastic
- 1/4" ribbon
- Matching thread
- Copy of pattern
Cut two sets to make the left and right booties. Cut two soles for each bootie. The other two parts are placed on the fold.
Fold the bootie back on the fold wrong sides together. Make two rows of stitching, the location of which is marked on the pattern. This will create a casing for elastic. Insert the elastic. Pull so it is gathered and stitch the sides to stabilize. Place lengths of ribbon on top of the elastic sides so the ribbon will be inserted into the seams.
Place the sides of the back along the edges of the upper bootie and machine baste. The upper bootie folds over the gathered unit to enclose the side seams.
Machine sew the sides using 1/4" seams. This will enclose the seams of the gathered back.
Place two layers of the soul together, matching the notches on the sole to the toe and back of the upper bootie.
Pin into place and sew 14" seam around the sole. Zig zag to finish the seam.
Turn the booties right side out and the ribbons are tied in front. They turn out darling. Hope you enjoy this pattern. You can download the pattern here.
