Master the clothes and shoes for children not onlyprofitable, but also very nice! Did you know that even sandals for a baby can be made by hand? Following our advice, you will easily cope with this task. These tiny sandals made of artificial leather with bows look so cool on the plump children's legs! It's worth spending a little time for such a beauty! Is not it so? These sandals have a strap around the heel witha small piece of rubber to keep them well and not become too fast. Want to make a similar shoes for your princess? The specified sizes are calculated on the baby from 3 till 6 months. Correct them to fit your child. Start by finding the right artificial leather (vinyl) at your local fabric store or in the pantry. Suitable rags from a jacket or bag. Make sure the material is not too hard and not too soft. Fold and stretch it will have only a little - during sewing. From the existing skin, cut out the soles. You can take a shoe that fits your child, as a template - and circle it with a pencil. It is necessary to cut out 4 parts - two of the same, that is, the left and right sole - the lower and upper side. In addition, cut 2 pieces of felt (felt) of the same shape. In total, there will be 3 blanks for the sole of each sandal. Next, place a felt layer between the twoleather pieces. Make sure the leather sides are facing outwards. Now stitch several stitches through the soles of the sandals to keep all 3 layers in place. (Be careful that your layers do not budge while sewing, it's best to start from the center line). Then cut 2 strips of fabric for the strap, which will be located above the fingers. (approximately 15x2 cm). Sew them together along both long edges. Make sure the skin on both sides is facing outward. Then cut off another small strip, which will be used for the middle of the strap, pulling it into the bow (approximately 1.2 x 5 cm). Stitch around the edges. Now form a bow, as in the photo. Wrap the narrow strip in the middle of the wide one and press it. Trim the excess length and manually sew the joint. Now bend your bow a little so that he "hugs" the foot of the baby. Then cut out four strips for the backsandals. (Approximately 1x5 cm). Also cut a piece of rubber about 2 cm long. Place one end of the rubber band between the skin strips, so that the elastic band is hidden under the skin by about 5 mm. Stitch 2 seams. Repeat the operation from the other end of the rubber band. After making sure that you are doing everything correctly and the skin "looks" outward, sew the front and back parts of the leather strips together along the sides. Now the placement of belts is of great importance. Place the bow over the baby's foot and try on the heel strap around the heel. The strap must fit tightly so that the sandals do not fall off, but you can not allow the baby to push something. Mark the marker. At this stage, you need to slightly dissolve the seam on the bow, insert the ends of the thong-strap inside, cut off excess (if necessary) and sew. Another fitting - and sew the bow to the soles close to its edge. In the upper part of the strap-bow must be a little narrower already, in order to "sit" on the leg well. Now cut off any excess material. To process the edges, you need a thin strip of skin. Cut a long strip of skin along the braid so that it can be slightly stretched along the outline of the sole. This will be about 1.6 cm in width and about 12 cm in length. Just make sure that it is wide enough to lie around the edge of the sole and it can be freely stitched. Begin to scribble the edge on the straight part of the sandal and bend it along the outline of the sole. Sew slowly, periodically checking if the needle passes the edge - both from the outside and from the inside. In the end, allow the ends to be lapped by about 1 cm and cut at an angle. Now it is only necessary to cut off unnecessary threads and excess artificial leather around the edging, if it looks uneven. Repeat all these steps to create a second sandal. Here is a view from below. And it's all. Your little sandals are ready for the princess to wear them.
