How to Make Simple Felt Baby Booties Select a soft, supple felt. Create your own design. Cut out the pattern pieces. Along the front border of the booties, pin the top to the sole. Sew the heel of each bootie to the rear of the bootie. Attach the remaining upper and sole. Use a pair of sharp scissors to cut out the booties. Try using a knife to cut out the booties if you don't have any scissors.
Baby booties are fun to make and easy to sew. They can be made from fabric or leather. If you choose to use leather, try to get the softer side for best results. The material should be comfortable to wear with no tight spots where dirt can hide.
Your baby's feet grow up fast! Make sure they stay warm and dry while walking around the house in these handmade booties. These are an excellent project to use up all those old clothes in your closet. There are so many different styles of baby booties you might want to make several copies of one pattern just in case you want to change things up a little bit. Have fun playing with colors and shapes and don't be afraid to experiment with new materials. For example, you could make some booties out of wood, plastic, or even metal if you wanted to.
These are just a few ideas of how you can use up old clothes and create something unique and personal for your baby.
Make a tube out of cardboard and insert it into the sock to help keep it in place and open. It should take the shape of a boot. Wrap duct tape over the shoe and sock to completely hide them. Rep with the other boot. You can wear socks inside the taped-up shoes for added comfort.
This is an easy way to disguise old clothes that you no longer want or need. No one will ever know that you were once wearing dirty, worn-out shoes if you cover them up with some duct tape.
The beauty of this project is how simple it is to make and how few materials are required. You can easily create more than one pair of duct tape boots if you get tired of them after they're done hiding your shoes.
If you plan to walk or run in these boots, make sure you buy footwear that is designed for walking or running on asphalt or concrete. Otherwise, you might experience pain later on.
Also, make sure you wrap the duct tape around all five toes of both feet. Otherwise, you might miss some areas that need to be covered up and cause problems for your feet in the long run.
Finally, make sure you use white duct tape for this project. Black duct tape will eventually stain your shoes, and that won't look very good!
Making Baby Footprints with Your Hands:
Slip your foot into your Ugg boots gently until the heel hits the ankle seam. Place the boot sole on the floor. Grasp the sides of your UGG boots at the top seam. Push your heel gently into the boot. The leather will stretch and the shoe will move up toward the calf of your leg.
Your UGGs should fit comfortably now that you've stretched them out a bit. If they feel too small, wear them without socks for a day or two to allow them to relax again before wearing them again.

This craft requires just three things: paper, pencil, and patience. You will need to print off two copies of each image (you can use your computer for this task). Then using pencil, draw over the top of one copy of the image in a clear, even layer. Now use your patience as you go through each page with a fine-tipped pen and write something special about your baby's hand or foot. Don't worry about how it looks yet; we'll get to that later.
When you're done writing, fold the paper along the marked lines and secure with a stickier. Now you have a beautiful picture of your baby's hand or foot that you can display on your desk, fridge, or anywhere else you wish.
This craft was very popular among mothers back in the day when photos were taken with actual film instead of by scanning documents. They would then develop their own pictures or have them done by a professional photographer. Today, moms simply download their favorite images from the internet and print them at home.
