ASSEMBLY
  Sew the 12mm buttons for the straps.
  I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have it in the position you like best before sewing. What I did was stuff the bootie with tissue so I could pin the pieces in place.
  The peak I place them a little under the eye and sew it in place with matching thread.
  You want to place the eyes close to each other on the very top.
  Sew the 10mm buttons on top of the white part of the eye.
  The little flowers I found them at my local yarn store. I use hot glue to place them in the booties.
