No Sew Baby Shoes! DIY Tutorial

Ok, so they may not technically be 'shoes' but they sure are cute!  And they are perfect for babies who don't walk yet, or even ones who won't tolerate real shoes.  I love them because Scarlett always kicks her shoes and socks off and we are always missing one.  I also let my kids run around the backyard with no shoes if they want to and these are just adorable.  The best thing about them, you probably already have everything you need to make them.  Just a little bit of material (or an old t-shirt) a hot glue gun, and a little bit of felt.

 Materials Needed:
6 strips of fabric about 1"x4" 
(longer or shorter depending on how wide your child's foot is)
4 1"x2" ovals of felt
20 1"x 1" squares of material

 1) Take three strips and glue them onto one felt oval.  Just glue one end to the top and then wrap it underneath and glue the other end also to the top of the felt.  This will make the straps.  Put two of them closer to each other.  I bunched my ends when glueing.
 2) Glue another piece of felt on top of the straps.
 3) Take one square and put a dot of hot glue in the center.  Then grab it from the underneath squeeze so it bunches.  Repeat with all ten squares.      Then glue them to the top piece of felt starting in the center and working your way out.

4) Repeat all steps for the second "shoe." 
Here is the pin where I got the idea.
 These are so easy to make!  If you make them send me a picture and I will post it.

Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: emutemple@gmail.com or you can contact him through his website https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ fb page Https://web.facebook.com/Emu-Temple-104891335203341

Indeed, baby shoes are adorable! My mom used to make cloth baby shoes before for my nephews. And they are all lovely. She still kept some of it in her cabinet as a collection.
