Baby Ballet Shoes Tutorial

After making my niece her adorable Christmas Party dress, I realized she simply NEEDED shoes to match girly girl in training – lol. I whipped out an older pair of my youngest daughters that looked easy enough for basic pattern info, deconstructed them, added a ribbon, and give you baby ballet shoes!

They came out super cute, and I am really excited to give them as an accessory with her handmade dress.

For pattern and instructions on how to make your own baby ballet slippers, click HERE.

The pattern is only available for Size 4 currently (9 – 12 months), as that was the size of the shoe I was working with, but can try to figure out the smaller sizes if requested. Based on a basic sizing chart found on-line, it looks as if each size decreases approximately 1/4″ the smaller you get.

Happy Sewing!
