House Shoes

Lately I've been finding the wooden floors of our home quite cold and dusty (however many times you sweep them!) So I decided to try my hand at making some fabric house shoes - this my first attempt - and while I think I will try batting them with wool and playing around with the shape for the next ones, they are just so lovely. So soft on the soles and toes. On the soul.


p.s. there are so many wonderful pattern tutorials for shoes on etsy
I used this one.

  1. Oh, those are super cute, and I recognize the fabric! ;) I have purchased a couple of baby bootie patterns from that seller before but never got around to making them (shrug).

  3. I love them! I could see them being worn outside too but they would just need a tougher sole, you could even become a shoe maker if you wanted to Emily! ;)

  4. Allison, I was pouring over all the lovely cotton you sent me and thought what better way to enjoy them then on my feet! Thank you. And as for lots of well-meaning untouched craft projects? I hear you!

    Abigail ♥ thank you for your lovey words

    #~凉粉~# - Hello! Nice to hear from you.. Yes the shoes are comforable but quite thin (so not for using outside) but I'm going to try and pad my next pair out with some wool batting (that you use for quilts)

    Ailin, ailin, dear dear friend - We should totaly go into shoe making! Maybe for the markets? You can find me eco-friendly strong soles and paint cotton canvas, and I'll seam and sew and make tea.

  10. So snazzy. You and house shoes!

    I know what you mean about floorboards becoming dusty and cold; especially in winter. But I do love them.
