Sewing up With right sides together sew up the back seam. Turn right side out. Sew the sole into the bootee attaching to the picot pick up row. These bootees aren't designed to be walked in. The picot hem gives the illusion of thick soles. Catch the straps down with a few stitched. Weave in all loose ends.
