Use wool felt to create adorable baby booties with sweet embellishments. Cutting and embellishment templates are included for this fun baby craft project. Project from C&T Publishing.
Patterns and Templates:
Click here to download the bootie pattern, embroidery and appliqué templates PDF. Use the pencil to trace the pattern pieces and placement marks onto tracing paper. Cut out. Use the large needle to pierce holes at the marked positions for the shoelace and at the center front of the toe piece. Make a template for your chosen bootie motif in the same way.
Green Booties with Stars
Center the star template over the marked dot on the bootie front. Trace around the circle with the fabric marker (diag 2). Repeat for the second bootie front piece.
Secure two strands of the green thread on the back and bring it to the front on the marked circle. Take the needle to the back at the center. Work a second straight stitch next to the first, taking the needle to the back through the same hole at the center (diag 3). Continue to work straight stitches around the entire circle in this way. Stitch the white highlights, using two strands of thread. Secure the thread and bring it to the front a short distance from the edge of the star. Take the needle to the back halfway along and between two green stitches (diag 4).
Continue to work white highlights around the circle in this way, spacing the stitches 3mm (1/8″) apart.
MAKE THE PERFECT GIFT FOR A SPECIAL BABY
CONSTRUCTING THE BOOTIES
EDGING THE FRONT AND BACK PIECES
Pull the thread through. Work a second blanket stitch around the edge of the felt a short distance from the first (diag 3). Continue along the edge in this way until reaching the opposite side. After the last stitch, bring the needle to the front through the same hole in the fabric to anchor the last stitch (diag 4). Work a tiny stitch, taking the needle to the back.
Secure the thread under the stitches on the back. Work blanket stitch over the upper edge of the remaining front and two back pieces in the same way.
ASSEMBLING THE BOOTIES
Secure the thread inside the bootie. Slide the needle between the layers to bring it to the front at the edge (diag 7).
Work blanket stitch in a similar way to the edges of the upper pieces, stitching through all layers around the edge of the bootie to join the upper pieces to the sole (diag 8). Carefully remove the tacking stitches.
