Links to Free Baby Bootie Patterns

There is no official baby bootie pattern for the Project.  Purchase your own, do  an online search for baby shoe patterns, or check out some of the ones I have found below.  The installation plan calls for 15,000 pairs of WHITE booties. Please make at least ten pairs of white booties.  Embellishment/trims can be any color of your choice.

If you are making or helping to make a panel, be sure to make enough booties in each color to complete the pattern.  Many panels are made up of only one color.  

For my favorite simple baby bootie sewing pattern by Heather BaileyMy sister Nanci shows you how to make 63 pairs of this pattern in under 6 hours.  Click here for the video link. 

NOTE:  I have modified Heather Bailey’s Bitty Bootie pattern to avoid having to gather the toe!  The fastest and easiest sewing pattern I have found.  Click here for a video on how to stitch up a pair in 90 seconds.

If you live in the Tucson area and would like to stitch booties, I will provide a hands-free delivery of 100 un-sewn, cutout, and embellished booties for your to stitch!  Email me at

Want to sew a pair of Mary Janes? These are great for those whose panels are mostly black.

There are 70 miscellaneous patterns at this page alone.

Please remember that what matters most is that you care enough to make a little elegy.  Your booties do NOT have to be technically perfect or extravagant, though you are welcome to make them as fancy as you like.

We are thrilled to announce a scrap-busting Zoom class to make

booties for the project via Swan Amity Studios.  We’ll try different patterns and

fun ways to embellish your contributions to the project.

  1. I would be interested in helping sew booties. I read somewhere that maybe the precut patterns get mailed to you?

    1. The address is on the instructions and permissions forms. It is, 2000 South Hermosa, Tucson, AZ 85713. Please be sure to fill out the form and stitch each bootie to its mate. Thank you!
