I am still staying up late at night sewing- driving myself nutty with all my fleece- trying to find a boot pattern that stays put! Those sheepskin booties above are really cute, but I know those wouldn't stay on, DS' foot would slip right out. He's a crawler and it seems no matter where the elastic is, the boots still come off.
My best pattern so far is just like a robeez shoe but the back/heel part comes up over the ankle and snaps across the front, so they're like a hightop shoe. When I make shoes from the same pattern, they stay on great, but for some reason the hightop part makes them come off easier- I am totally clueless why this is, seems like it should be just the opposite.
I am now thinking if I find some way to get the baby's foot in easily but have a lace-up or snap-up top that is very snug fitting all around, maybe that will stay on. Baffling. The hard part is trying to get a boot that I can get on his little feet, but something that doesn't come off. I had one that was almost impossible put on, but once it was there, it stayed. Why is this so difficult?
So here I am, baffled, but still trying to figure it out. Maybe by next winter...
