So, here are a couple pairs of soft soled shoes that I had been working on... I used a pattern from stardustshoes blog and it came out okay. I think that I am going to try a couple others and also try making my own. They all are generally the same idea just different shapes of the pattern pieces. The tan cord pair is for a friend's little boy and the brown flower pattern are some soft slipper ones for Evie, you can even see them in action. I will say though that they slip off even when I tightened the elastic. I am not sure if it is because the fabric I used for the inside was fleece or the opening is just a little too big... we will see.
