Baby girl moccasin booties

This coming Thursday, Aaron and I are travelling up to Brisbane to spend 4 days with his brother and girlfriend who just gave birth to a baby girl. Aaron's parents will be flying from NZ to meet us there as well, so I'm thinking baby girl is getting lots of cuddles. I had some left over baby soft dusty pink yarn and decided to tackle this pair of cute moccasin booties. They came out quite nice! So wee! The pattern was off of Raverly. The pattern was easy after you decipher some parts. It almost needed a graphic representation, well at least for me. Especially at points where it fastens and reattaches is written quite ambiguously. Also without prior knowledge of bootie anatomy, I was at a lost as to which part I was making. (Referring to instep part) I could see how this pattern could be a bit difficult to grasp visually for beginners and so I have provided some drawings at places which I found confusing.

It doesn't enlarge big enough for me to see it. :(

Perfect! I was struggling with this transition and I definitely appreciate the demonstration... after staring at it for a while this was sort of my guess, but it is not very clear in the pattern. Thanks!

Thank you - I knew it must be simple I just didn't understand where the back was - brilliant drawing :-)

This is very helpful! Only part I still can't visualize is the very end where it says sew up the sole. But maybe when I actually do it, it will make sense. Thanks!

I made it thru a bootie. I understand sew up the sole. I had a hard time figuring out this pattern! It's too bad there is no tutorial on youtube or a tutorial with pictures as you go. This was the only help I found. Thanks again!
