The yellow leather is very soft and subtle. Probably perfect for little babies, but a little too light weight for my big Stry-guy. Next time I’ll reinforce the toe to make them stronger. But either way these are perfect for little walkers, because the leather allows their toes to grip the ground and you know how important that is for little kids beginning to walk.
I like to use a soft suede on the bottom of my baby moccasins. The suede grips the floor and prevents Stryder from slipping on almost all surfaces. In fact, I can’t remember a single time he’s slipped in these or any other pair of moccasins I’ve made him.
I’ve thought about sharing a tutorial for these baby moccs, or at least showing you how to alter a baby shoe pattern to create them, but I’d like to gauge interest first. What do you think? Are you interested in learning to sew with leather and create stylin’ baby shoes like these?
What would you prefer: a tutorial explaining how to alter a free baby shoe pattern (in one size) or a full pattern in multiple sizes with a few possible styles?
Or, to heck with all that, would you just prefer to buy them already made? Please weigh in with you opinion in the comments below! I’ve had requests for this thing all three ways: tutorial, pattern, product. I need some direction from YOU before I head in any direction. Thanks so much!
