Make your own footwear

Make your own footwear

Hi again!

If you’ve read my last post, you will have seen that I was fortunate enough to be a pattern tester for the brand new pattern release from Helen’s Closet; the Suki Kimono.

Well, I couldn’t very well make the robe of my dreams and then pair it with my battered ol’ slippers could I?! So I tossed them out in the trash and made my own Matchy Matchy pair using the Prym Espadrilles kit sent to me for review by Minerva Crafts.  You can read my review and demo of how I made these slip on’s using the same floaty lightweight viscose fabric I made the robe in over on Minerva’s Blog now. Clue: they’re the easiest things ever!!

Put it this way, I feel like a kid playing dress-up in this – not a bad way to start the day! I’ll be making a pair to match every robe I make!

I just keep thinking of Pinhead from Hellraiser!

Until next time, happy summer sewing!

  5. The pattern pieces do come with the soles and there’s an instruction tutorial up on You Tube – they’re so simple!! X

    They look awesome! Did the pattern piece come with the soles or was it separate. Love the idea of making these!
