Sewing for Silas: Slippers!

I hate baby socks. 
Sure, they’re tiny and cute. But they don’t. stay. on. 
At all. 
The solution? Baby slippers! I had a pair of these little slippers that someone gave me for my twins (I never used them! In fact, I have no idea where I got them. Hand-me-downs?) but have loved them for Silas. The only problem? The original pair is too small now! 
So, I made some new ones today! 
I traced his foot and the original pair to make up this little pattern. 
 …they fit! YEA!

 Happy baby loves his new slippers! No more cold feet!
And they don’t come off without undoing the velcro! YES! 

I'd love to hear your story!
