Baby Winter Boots

 Yesterday was our first snow of winter!
Perfect time to welcome December.  With cold weather coming in, I decided to make Ellaria little boots out of my scraps.

I purchased the pattern for these easy button boots HERE from I think sew.
As always, fabric shoes never maintain a nice perfect shape like manufactured shoes would obviously.  They bunch and can look a little wonky at times.  But they're easy, affordable and comfortable and I think they're really cute.  She's worn them a few times and has received quite a few compliments on her cute button boots.

They're perfect for Ellie who's not walking yet so she doesn't need real shoes, but with cold weather, it's nice to have more than a sock for her.

The boots are all lined with fleece to make them warm.
The houndstooth pair is a scrap from my sheath dress.
The black pair is from an old wool sweater I cut up.
The khaki pair used the scraps from my uncut corduroy I used for my blazer.

For the bottoms, I used the same fabric and vinyl.  The chocolate vinyl sole is a scrap from my DIY Pouf.

 Using a sweater was fun, I cut the front tabs with the textured sweater hem on the bottom to make it a little more interesting.

The boot is basically a tall backed slipper, then you sew a separate foot flap that is top stitched to one side, then velcros across the front of the ankle.  The buttons are merely decorative. 

She's all ready for winter, and has loved watching the snow fall.  Pretty easy entertainment!

Ooooh I LOVE them! They are so stinkin cute. You also have an adorable model!
I would love a pair (or 100 pairs) of these for my baby boy. Even if I could sew well and bought the pattern, I don't think I'd have time to make them, as I'm 40 weeks pregnant now, haha.

I've been making these too (thanks to pinterest!). I'm a novice sewer and have now made FIVE pairs... each time tweaking the patter a bit to try to make it work. My baby's legs are simply too chubby for the original pattern :)
