He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

I LoVe these shoes andI've made a TON of them. I originally used the pattern from Family Centered Life but have since made my own. If you want to give it a go, click on the "Soft Baby Shoes Pattern"

I also found these and think they're adorable!

Most patterns out there aren't particularly helpful in getting the right fit for you little one's feet so I found this helpful post at Tacky Living...

Scaling the pattern:

- Measure the length of your child's foot from heel to toes. (This part can be challenging, since children tend to wiggle their toes furiously.)
- To that number, add 1/2" for "wiggle room" and 1/4" for seam allowances, for a total of an extra 3/4".
- Next, measure the length of the pattern piece for the sole, including the seam allowances.

The amount you'll need to scale the pattern will be the length of your child's foot + 3/4", divided by the length of the sole pattern piece. To get a percentage for copying machines and software, multiply the scale number by 100.
