Sew the right sides of the lining and self fabric together for the back of the shoe pattern. You will need to pin a lot and make sure as you sew you press the top flat as to not sew in any gathers from the elastic. Flip the pattern piece right side out and iron flat.
Now attach your snaps! Use the instructions on the Babyville pliers packaging to show you how to put them on. You can see the photo below for where I attached them.
I put an option for 2 of the bottom snap end so that the shoe could be tighter or looser depending on how big the baby is. For the second shoe put the snaps on the opposite sides of the back- so if you put the inside snaps on the right side, put them on the left side on the second shoe.
See the photo below. Here are some photos of using the Babyville pliers. To sew the pieces together find the center of the bottom sole of the shoe there should have been a notch on the pattern , center of the open part of the tongue pattern, and center of the open part of the back piece. You will pin the back piece to the bottom piece first, right sides together.
Start pinning at the center and the pin out from there. It should look like the photo below when you are done pinning the back piece to the bottom. Next pin the tongue or top of the shoe to the bottom.
Start at the center and then pin out from there. The edges will overlap with the back piece a half an inch or so. I have a serger so I used that but you can easily just use a regular stitch and then zig zag the edge or use pinking scissors to trim the edges.
Turn it right side out and you are finished!! When I make projects like this I like to cut 3 or 4 out and sew them all at once.

Baby Bootie Sewing Pattern If you want to size them up or down you can easily do so by enlarging the pattern and reducing it.
With a quick trip through the baby section you can gather measurements for other desired sizes. Remember to allow for seam allowances.
I just printed the pattern and it prints small. Be aware of this. Changing your print settings to no borders may help you. They can be made from a variety of fabrics. They are cute in denim or corduroy lined with flannel. Or try fleece lined with knit or flannel. I love chenille and flannel together. I used patriotic fuzzy fleece for a pair years ago. These are eyelet lace and flannel.
Which makes them summer weight. Think about seasons as you sew. Warmer is usually better. Remember thicker fabric will yield a smaller bootie. And remember to use small seams. I like to touch the end of the ribbons to the burner on my electric stove or run them through a candle so that they will not fray. I used to use shoe laces when I made these for my little boys and I would melt the cut end prior to tacking to the booties. I wish I had thought to take pictures along the way to show you how to assemble them, but I just did not think of it.
I tack the ribbons or shoe laces securely in place before I seam the booties for extra security. For a young or new seamstress these booties might be a challenge. But, they are surely my favorite. I hope that you enjoy them. Hopefully you'll help some little feet to be cute and warm. I'd like to hear from you if it was. Sew two right sides together. Sew casings for the elastic. Tack it with a bar tack on each end. Pin the bootie back to the right side of the bootie front.

Later a friend gave me a pattern similar to this one that has a square heal. My babies wore that pattern until I found this one free on the Author: LDS Mom to Many.
