Seth's New Shoes

Last night, inspired by the moccasins bro-in-law Scott had made for my nephew, Liam (which are waaaay cooler than these), I decided to make some soft soled shoes for Seth out of some suede panels from an old jacket that had a broken zipper. I used this pattern and tutorial , although I had to adapt it a bit to fit his chubby, wide foot. I should have made them even wider because they barely fit. But at least for now, he has something other than socks to keep his little feet warm.

Cute! Now let's see how long it takes him to figure out how to pull them off! :D

Thanks for the comments and link! I'll have to visit the thrift store soon so I can find some more leather to make some for the next size. The other kids might like them too.
