Pattern Description:
Perfect for summer! These open toe slingbacks are ready to head to the park, a party or the beach. Your little darling will get oohs and ahhs wherever she goes!

Cute little toes peep out the front and a velcro closure in the back allows flexibility in getting the perfect fit. Includes an optional step for adding clear elastic to keep these on extra wiggly feet without ruining the look. Fully lined for double the cuteness!

Pattern Sizing:
0-18 mos.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
I thought so until I discovered I'd reversed the lining on one shoe!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Quick and easy...and SO cute!

Fabric Used:
Cotton. I also added stiffer interfacing for the soles.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Read somewhere that puffy paint helps create traction on the bottoms of toddler shoes. Gave it a try.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I actually have some leather scraps I picked up at a fabric warehouse that I'm considering using for another pair of these.

Conclusion:
Fun side project when fitting myself gets really frustrating!
