Line up the “back of shoe” pieces with the “sole of shoe” pieces matching them so that the centers match up(dashed lines represent middle of piece). Right sides should be together.
Begin sewing from the middle point outward at the back heel of the shoe. Match the seams as you sew. When you reach the end of the “back of shoe” piece reinforce the stitch and then go back to the center back of the shoe and begin sewing from the middle outwards again, this time to the opposite edge. Assemble the flowers as per the instructions within the baby shoe pattern. Assemble the flowers onto the "front of shoe" piece as you see fit.
Match the “top of shoe” pieces together with wrong sides facing and pin in place. Match the pinned pieces with the “sole of shoe” pieces with right sides facing. Match the pieces together at the center lines.
Starting at the top center point of the “front of shoe” piece, begin sewing from the center outwards, matching the seams as you sew. When you reach the end reinforce the seams and start over back at the center point working outwards at the opposite side.
When you reach the end turn the shoe right side out and begin sewing the “front of shoe” pieces together by stitching along the edge, sewing from one side and ending at the opposite side. Next sew the “back of shoe” pieces together in the same manner.
Finish the shoe by sewing on a snap or buttons for closure at the ankle of the shoes.
