Footie Sprites Pattern- Kid’s Foot Adjustment

Our new Footie Sprites pattern comes in sizes newborn through 12 for kids and XXS through 4X for adults.

Since we’ve seen kids ages 3 to 7 all in the same size shoe, we know many of you will need to make an adjustment to the foot length for your kiddo.
To determine which size foot your child needs, have them stand on the pattern piece with their heel and the heel of the pattern piece against a wall. Since the pattern uses 1/4″ seam allowance for the Sole and Toe pieces, you should choose the size that is at least 1/2″ away from your child’s toe, but not more than 1″ which would be too big.

If your child needs a larger size foot than pant:

1- Print the pattern with the layers for the sizes you need for the foot and the pant turned on.

2- Cut out the Pant piece in the size you need for the pant and then trim around what’s left of the Pant piece for the other size.

3- Place the larger size on top of the smaller, centering them from side to side and aligning them at the bottom.

4- Tape the pieces together.

5- Use a pen to smooth the sides of the pieces so the transition from one to the other is smooth.

6- Cut out the larger toe hole and trim off the paper where you smoothed in the previous step. (illustrated in red in the image below)

7- Use the larger size Toe and Sole pieces and your modified Pant piece to sew a pair of
perfectly-fitting Footie Sprites.

 

If your child needs a smaller size foot than pant:

1- Print the pattern in the size you need for the Pant and print the bottom half of the Pant in the size you need for the foot.

2- Cut out the both Pant pieces. Place the smaller Pant on top of the larger Pant, centering them from side to side and aligning them at the bottom.

3- Tape the pieces together.

4- Use a pen to smooth the sides of the pieces so the transition from one to the other is smooth.

5- Trim off the paper where you smoothed in the previous step. Use the bottom half of the smaller Pant with the top half of the larger pant. The red lines in the image below are the smaller size.

6- Use the smaller size Toe and Sole pieces and your modified Pant piece to sew a pair of
perfectly-fitting Footie Sprites.

 

That’s it! Be sure to sew it and show it in our facebook group!
