Quilting Instructions - 
For the upper part of your shoes you will need a Fat Quarter. For the lining you will need a Fat Quarter.  You will also need a 5/8 yard of SF101 stabilizer and 1/2 yard of By Annie's Soft and Stable.
Press the SF101 to the back of your upper shoe fabric.
Quilt the upper fabric (that has the SF101 on the back) to the lining fabric with Soft and Stable from By Annie's in between.  Batting will make for a wimpy shoe!  Please use the By Annie's Soft and Stable. 
For a different tongue than the upper shoe, quilt up at least a 10" square of fun fabric, lining, SF101 and Soft and Stable.
