Baby boy and baby girl shoes with cutting files and assembly instructions

How cute are these!  The August Paz­zles Chal­lenge is a project involv­ing water.  I had moti­va­tion to work on a baby project since my daugh­ter Jor­dan gave birth to her sec­ond lit­tle boy recently!  His name is Owen Carter and he is such a beau­ti­ful baby!   So I decided to make some baby shoes that have ele­ments on them that include the water theme.  I loved how these shoes look so much, that I made quite a few of them!  Of course, I made more boy ones in cel­e­bra­tion for our family’s newest addition!
I saw many man­ual tem­plates for these on the inter­net, but couldn’t find any WPC cut­ting files for my machine, so I came up with a cut­ting file for both the boy and girl shoe.  Here is the WPC BOY SHOE CUTTING FILE and here is the WPC GIRL SHOE CUTTING FILE.  Place mouse over link and right click to “Save File” on your com­puter.    Then open in your machine soft­ware.  Assem­bly instruc­tions are below.  I hope these files are use­ful to those who have this capability.



































**NOTE**  Even with very care­ful tab place­ment, the glued tabs tend to have slightly jagged edges due to the curves of the shoes.  For that rea­son, I applied lace or pearls at the bot­tom of most of the shoes to cover this. The lace/pearls gives the appear­ance of a sole so actu­ally makes the shoes appear more realistic!
BOY SHOE ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS:
Down­load the cut­ting file and fold the tabs along the scored lines.  If you are going to add eye­lets, it should be done at this point:

Start at the top of the sole and cen­ter and glue the mid­dle tab to the sole top as shown.  Hold in place until the glue is firmly set:

Since these pieces are curved, the glue­ing process should be done slowly and care­fully to posi­tion the tabs in place as best pos­si­ble.  I found that I got the best result if I glued just one or two tabs at a time. Try to align the tabs at the very edge of the sole for opti­mal appear­ance.  Con­tinue to glue each tab into posi­tion by curv­ing to fit the sole as you go along:

Once the shoe front is in place, insert the smaller sole inside the shoe, but DO NOT glue in place just yet.  This extra sole will cover the exposed tabs. Lift this up so that the tabs for the back of the shoe can be affixed first:

Take the back of the shoe and apply glue to the two cen­ter tabs.  Cen­ter these tabs to the back of the sole and hold firmly until glue is set:

Curve the back and apply glue to the tabs one at a time and hold firmly to set to achieve the best appearance:

Apply glue to the sides of the shoe back as shown:

Now apply glue to the under­side of the heel part of the smaller sole insert and gen­tly posi­tion into place to hide the tabs. Lace shoes and decorate.


GIRL SHOE ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS:
Down­load the cut­ting file and fold the tabs along the scored lines:

Start at the top of the sole and cen­ter and glue the tab with the small punc­ture (5th tab) to the punc­ture mark on the sole top as shown.  Hold in place until the glue is firmly set:

Since this piece is curved, the glue­ing process should be done slowly and care­fully to posi­tion the tabs in place as best pos­si­ble.  As with the boy’s shoe, I found I got the best result if I glued just one or two tabs at a time. Try to align the tabs at the very edge of the sole for opti­mal appear­ance.  Con­tinue to glue each tab into posi­tion by curv­ing to fit the sole as you go along.



Once all the tabs are glued onto the sole, insert the smaller sole and glue it down to hide the tabs.  Then glue the base of the shoe strap to the adja­cent side as shown here:

Now glue the shoe strap to the oppo­site side.

The shoe is now ready to decorate.
