INSTRUCTIONS:

Notes:

  • The fabrics may shrink during the first washing. For this reason, we recommend that you wash the fabrics before beginning to cut and sew your booties.

  • The patterns provided is to scale, please check the correct size of your print out with the help of the control square. The pattern does not include seam allowance.
     
  • When cutting out pieces, add 1 cm (3/8 inch) wide seam allowances around all edges.

  1. Shoe piece: for each bootie, cut 2 pieces from each fabric and also 2 batting pieces
     
  2. Sole: for each bootie, cut 2 pieces from lining fabric and also 1 piece of foam rubber
     
  3. First quilt the outer fabric and the batting together. To do this, lay the fabric on the batting, with the right fabric side facing up. Stitch vertically and horizontally along the lines of the checked print.

    Tip: After each construction step, press all seams and edges. This makes sewing easier and makes the seams look neater.

     
  4. For each bootie, lay the shoe pieces of outer fabric together, right sides facing. Stitch the back seam. Press the seam open. Stitch the lining pieces together in the same manner. Then lay the lining unit on the outer unit, right sides facing. Stitch together from each seam mark (1) to center back seam. Now lay the outer pieces together again and stitch
    together from seam mark 1 to seam mark 2. Stitch the lining pieces together in the same manner.
     
  5. For each sole, lay the fabric pieces together, wrong sides facing, then lay the foam rubber piece between the fabric layers. Stitch all three layers together, around outer edges. Stitch sole to top unit. On inside of bootie, finish edges of allowances with zigzag stitching. Turn bootie right side out. Make the second bootie in the same manner. Your warm booties are ready to wear!

note that the pdf file is sized for size A paper - not the 'letter' size we are familiar with in the USA - so when it prints, a sliver of the pattern is cut off. Print the pattern at 100% (no scaling) and enough of the pattern will print so that you can make the booties. If you want to make them smaller - just scale down the pattern. If you want to make them larger, take them to a copier and enlarge onto ledger size paper.

I have been WANTING a pattern like this. So I've tried to print it, got page 1 just fine, got 2 copies of page 2 both of which did NOT have the heel part, I'd guess about an inch is missing, and never ever got page three. I tried SEVERAL times to print that page (3) only AFTER it did NOT print when I did the first printing. Just kept coming up an error occurred. Also I don't know if my print on page 2 is to scale or not, because I have no idea how much 5cm is. I do know I printed on 8.5 x 11 (standard size) sheet of paper and part of the heel is missing and when I held the print up to my screen it was NOT the same size. I printed at 100% as I didn't know what else to do. Rather dissappointing to finally find a pattern and then have no fun trying to get it for real, nit just a computer picture. LOL boohoo!

@pvbryant 4494931, The pattern is available as a PDF file. Simply click on the link in the materials list called "Shoe and sole patterns." The patterns should automatically download to your computer. You will need the latest version of Adobe installed on your computer in order to open and view the pattern. I hope this helps! --Editors of FaveQuilts
