The shoes turned out very cute , I used a double layer of denim, fused together with steam n seam. I cut the toe piece about a 1/4 " longer than pattern, sewing the loop by machine . I secured the loop on the strap when I sewed on the flowers . The pattern was clearly illustrated and instructions easy to understand . My granddaughter will love them Sharon
