|Remember the sweet little Pleated Mary Janes? Well I thought it was only fair to share a pattern for boys. Back when my son was a baby I only made the 3 seam booties, (you know the ones like the robeez shoes?) Then after the Mary Jane pattern I made a boy version for some friends having boys. I also made a few for my daughter since it is basically a warmer version of a mary-jane. So do you want to make some too?

|Start by sewing right sides together the two top pieces. Don’t sew the outside line together.|
|Then turn it right side out and top stitch the edge.|
|Then add any applique or design you want to the shoe. (you could also do this last if you want)|
|Then with right sides together pin the top to both layers of the sole. You want the “buckle” piece to be against the sole and then the toe of the shoe will over lap the buckle.|
|Then sew around the edge. To finish it off nice I trim away the extra fabric and then serge the edge, but it is optional.|
|Then turn it right side out and sew a snap on the flap and the side of the shoe to hold the buckle down.|
|Easy right? Your little guy will look great in them!|
I have also made girly one’s by adding a flower, or jewel and using feminine fabrics.
