Remona from The Stitching Scientist, shows how you can sew a pair of Mary Jane baby shoes with nonskid soles. You can make a pair for 3-6 month old baby from a pair of fat quarters – one fat quarter for the outside of the shoe and one fat quarter for the lining. She also shows how to draft a pattern using a pair of shoes that fit your child as a guide. Or, if you’re making a pair in size 3-6 months, she’s got a free pattern for you to download. Go to her tutorial showing how to draft a pattern for baby Mary Jane Shoes. Then, go to her tutorial showing how to use your pattern to sew the shoes (and also download the 3-6 month pattern).
