Polar fleece baby booties

Fleecy Baby Uggs

I have a lot of trouble getting socks or shoes to stay on Roman's feet. His legs are always moving and his shoes get kicked off in the process. I have a knitted bootie pattern that is pretty good, but knitting can be pretty time consuming, even for little booties.

I came across this pattern for some polar fleece sewn booties, so I thought I'd give them a go. They only took about 20 mins to whip up and are pretty cute. Roman still kicks them off with a little effort, but they put in a good fight to stay on.

I made the small size and they still have a bit of growing room left in them and Roman is almost 11 months. I used non-slip shelf liner as I had a piece lying around, but it is peeling a bit, so if I make more, I'd definitely get the non-skid fabric.

  1. Oh I'm so glad these worked out! I've never had any real feedback on the booties for boys. My cousin did make some slippers for her boys with the pattern using faux sheepskin that was lined with suede...they turned out really cute. Thanks for passing this link on!

    1. Hi Anon, it appears that the link to the multi sized pattern no longer exists. The pattern is still available in a size medium here. Hope that helps!

  4. The booties are just brilliant! So easy to make! The pattern can be done in any size. I used medium size pattern from the link here and then simply copied a picture and pasted it in Word document. Then I simply enlarged the picture by dragging the edges of the picture. If you work with 100% scale, you can measure the size of the sole according to your baby's foot. Worked perfectly for me!

  6. Aww, his little feet look so cute in them. He's well prepared for whatever he wants to take on in the day now ;-)

    That's a good idea. I'm not much of a knitter either but I do love to sew. I hardly see any sewn booties- they're usually knitted, so I am glad to see a pair that is attractive, functional and can be completed in twenty minutes.

    You don't want them to be too tight so I guess he will eventually be able to get them off.

  7. I've heard you can cover the bottoms of slippers with dots of puffy fabric paint for a non-skid surface.
