55 - Baby Moccasins

Like so many mommas out there I am a great admirer of the beautiful leather moccasins from Freshly Picked, but I face a dilemma when it comes to getting them for my boys. They are simply not in our budget. I can't justify $60 for a single pair of shoes that will only last a few months before they are outgrown. So I started looking for a similar looking pattern to make my own. I found a great pattern on Etsy that comes in a wide array of sizes. Purchased a bag of leather scraps for $10 and had some baby elastic from a previous project. They may not be the genuine article, but I'm pretty happy with the results plus Little A loves wearing his.

Those are fabulous! I too balk at paying that much for baby booties. I hadn't thought of making my own, thanks for the idea.

Here is a link the Etsy pattern I used. I did add fringe over the front elastic loop even though the pattern does not call for it.
