When my second baby was first born suddenly leather moccasins became all the rage. They can be quite pricey so I started making a few different kinds of shoes at home, some moccasins and some other styles.  I love that with your Cricut Explore Air 2 you can cut out faux leather and make some of these cute shoes!

Cricut Instructions:

  1. In Design Space open the faux leather baby shoe pattern. You can select all the pieces and resize them if you need them bigger or smaller. I recommend measuring the bottom of your baby’s foot and then resizing all the pieces until the sole is the desired size you need.
  2. Select Custom Material on your smart dial on your machine. In the drop down box, select Faux Leather.
  3. Make sure you faux leather is secured on your strong grip mat and load into the machine and cut out your pieces.

Sewing Instructions:

  1. You will have 3 pieces for one shoe
  2. Secure the back piece in the center to the sole, right sides together.
  3. Secure the front piece in the center for the from of the shoe, right sides together.
  4. Starting with the back piece continuing securing the shoe together. Remember that since it’s curved, it will be little wonky but secure it the best you can.

 

 

5. Make sure you secure the back piece of the shoe under the front piece.

6. Continue until the entire shoe is clipped together

7. Sew using a 1/4 inch seam allowance around the entire shoe

8. Remove the clips and then carefully flip the shoe right side out. Add shoelaces and your baby shoe is complete. Repeat steps 1-8 for the other shoe.
