Baby boots! (or slippers)

I had so much fun making these little boots for my sweet little niece :)
 
Trendy boots for babies and toddlers!
 
Since I don't know much about baby and toddler sizing, I traced my nieces foot before making these.  Then, I found an image of a toddler sized shoe sole and printed it so it was slightly longer than her foot measurements (heel to toe) to allow for seam allowances and some growth.  I looked at patterns for the toe portion of the boot and changed them up so they would work together with the sole.  Then, I used paper to draw out the rest of the pattern.  It took a bit of tweaking before the pieces worked together :)
 
The buttons are decoration.  I sewed in Velcro closures, so the boots open up all the way down to the sole.
