If You would like to see each part You can see in separeted in the picture below.
Sew hair, eyes ( below the line of changing color on the bootie), brows than horns and ears. I would sew nose to the mouth before sewing mouth to the bootie, than teeth. Remember to make whiskers on both sides of mouth. Sew hands and remember to make nails! Tongue would be the last part, I would sew it especially tightly cause it can help when putting the shoes on a baby feet. And don't forget to make a black line on tongue. DONE! Congratulation Now You have Your own Tasmanian Devil Booties.
