I love being challenged and making shoes is definitely a new challenge for me. I have made several slippers last year, so I had some experience with sewing slippers. I am so happy with how the Fynn Flat shoes from Sew U Can Patterns turned out for our youngest!
This pattern is for smaller baby and kids shoe sizes, up to a finished shoe of 7,5″, which is EU size 30. I made size 7 with a finished sole of 5,5″ for our 2 (almost 3) year old.
The shoe can be made in knit or woven fabrics. I used a woven cotton for the inside and I upcycled an old pair of jeans for the outside fabric. The elastic can be used for masks but also works great for these shoes and is 1 cm wide. For the sole I used the anti slip fabric that I have been using for this pair of slippers and this pair, which I have been wearing every single day the last months. It is very robust fabric and works great.
So far the shoes stay on pretty well, but I might add some fold over elastic to the back of the shoe to add some extra stretch to the back of the shoe.
Both our girls requested to get shoes like this pair. Unfortunately, our eldest just falls outside of the size range. I already ordered actual soles to try a different pattern for her. Let’s see how that is going to turn out.
