I just bought a pair of fabric baby shoes/slippers that I’d like to have a pattern for. Thought I had seen a Threads Magazine with them (but for adults) in it some time back but can’t seem to find it in the index. Does anyone know where to get something like that?
Could it be this article?
Light on the Sole

Handmade slippers are the last word in coziness for toes.

This is a good site for finding Threads articles: http://www.sewingmuse.org/index.html
I think SewStylish also had an article and maybe the same one in it a couple years ago. Go to http://www.craftstylish.com and type in slippers in the search box at the top. There are several sets of ideas and instructions. One was made from old sweaters and looked interesting.
Three of Kwik-Sew Patterns contain patterns for baby booties - check out #2433, #2656 and #3310. Their web site is http://www.kwiksew.com
I am not sure if this is what you have in mind but the Martha Stewart site has this free pattern for felt baby shoes that look like they will stay on. Every time I have a new grandchild (9 now) I say I must make these or the ones in the Vogue Pattern book but by the time I find the time, I decide the baby would be too big. Got to act fast with those growing babies !
Simplicity has two newish baby shoe patterns, 2941 and the really cute "Vintage" 2867:
Among the small,independent patterns, there's also Chloe's Toes:
and Make Them Yourself patterns:
Dear Woodruff ~ Thank you so much for sharing those sites! Cloe's Toes also has very detailed-looking how-to for making the shoes: http://www.chloetoesboutique.com/store/WsPages.asp?ID=5, and a request to write her for info on a "Cottage License", if one wanted to 'produce' these designs for profit (arts and crafts sales, Etsy, like that.) I've never noticed that anywhere else, and may look into that process. (Better safe than sorry, legal-wise!)Bright Blessings ~Kharmin
