My baby girl is 11 weeks old and until this week, had never worn a pair of shoes.  Her foot is pretty small!  I have a few ‘Newborn’ shoes and I have attempted to put them on her and they just plain look ridiculous or they’re too big for her skinny little feet and ankles!

So, when I came across the pin to this T-Shirt Baby Sandals on U-Create from Tutu’s & Tea Parties I realized I needed to go down this route for her shoe situation.  Then I was talking to a girlfriend and she told me that you could use elastic and a flower to execute the same look.  I ordered a tons of Shabby Flowers and Elastic when baby girl was first born to make her headbands. So, I went ahead and decided to make some elastic barefoot sandals!  There are a ton of options for flowers and ribbon on Amazon and Etsy.

These pair perfect with my DIY Baby Headbands too!

Now, let’s get started!

The first thing you should do is pair up the flowers to the elastic that you want to use. When you purchase Shabby Flowers, they come with a netting on the back.  So, you’ll need to start by trimming that up. Some of the flowers may not have netting on the back though.

The next step is to cut your elastic to length. If you have the ability, just wrap the elastic around the babies foot in a figure 8 up around the ankle to get your length. Dylan’s piece of elastic is 9 inches long. Take the babies age into consideration and adjust the length accordingly.

Baby Barefoot Sandal Sizing Suggestions

  • Newborn: 8 inches
  • 2-6 months: 9 inches
  • 6-8 months: 10 inches
  • 9-12 months: 12 inches

Again, these are just rough suggestions. Be sure to take the babies size into consideration if you are making these for gifts.

Take the elastic and fold it into a figure 8 and hot glue the ends together. Then while keeping the figure 8 shape, move the seam to the center of the figure 8. I then put a little dot of hot glue where the elastic crosses in the center to keep it in place.

Pickup your figure 8 and place a felt circle on the back in preparation to put the flower (with the hot glue on it) onto the front of the figure 8.

Turn it over and make sure that the edges of the felt circle are completely glued down. If needed, lift the edges and verify it’s all glued down.
