I came across a tutorial on Pinterest that shows with photos an easy way of doing cute felt shoes for a baby.
After an intensive search through my archives of fabrics, I found some lovely shades of felts and decided to surprise one of our friends, who has just given birth, with little felt slippers for her baby. I wanted a different look to the shoes than the slippers shown on Pinterest, so I made a pattern and a tutorial of my own (see below).

The measurements are naturally different depending on the size of the baby's feet. You will need to add half a centimeter to the length of the foot for extra space and the same for seam allowance (so +1.5 cm). If you don't have the baby's foot handy, below an average guide to baby foot sizes:
0 to 3 months - 9 to 10 centimetres
3 to 6 months - 10 to 12 centimetres
6 months to 1 year - 12 to 13 centimetres
1 year to 2 years - 13 to 14 centimetres

They are so simple and fun to make, I ended up making several pairs, all in different colour combinations. I have few pairs for sale in Etsy.
