Baby and Toddler Fabric Slippers Tutorial

This is a tutorial for slippers for babies and toddlers. They are pretty easy to make and you can make slippers to match clothes or pyjamas. For slippers that fit babies over 6 months old you should use non-slip gripper for the soles. I had some trouble finding this but I got mine from here: Non-slip fabric. Now I can't pretend to have invented these and there are plenty of patterns on the internet. I found some that are reversible (but without non-slip soles) and this can be found here: Reversible slippers. Heather Bailey also does some: Go here. Other sites include these: One, Two, Three.This is my take on these really sweet little tootsie warmers. They are very cute so why not give them a try? I have done a tutorial which is in PDF. You can download it HERE. If you want the tutorial in Word format please email me.

The purple and multi coloured bag was an order. I just thought you might like to see it. I used Uhandbag' s basket bag for the main part of bag although I made the base wider. I added longer straps for shoulder handles and extra internal pockets. I also added a zippered top opening. You can see other views of this bag in my flickr photos.
