I began by sewing the back of the shoe upper closed. Then I marked the middle front and middle back of the upper shoe and sole, and basted them together. I then measured and basted the sides.
Next I used three strands of embroidery floss and stitched the sole to the upper. I used white thread to stitch a "tuck" into the shoe top to make the strap. Finally I added the button and flower embellishment.
I forgot to mention that when I imported the cut file I adjusted the file to make the parts a bit smaller. I thought the original shoes were a bit too large for Avaleigh.
Tuesday night was family dinner night and I tried Avaleigh's shoes and her - and they fit perfect! From now on I will only make larger size shoes. Oh, and .... I ordered a variety pack of assorted colored felt from Amazon. I am ready to make shoes for all of her outfits.
And speaking of my darling Avaleigh, guess who turned on month old early this week??? Yep, this pretty baby!!
