Never thought I'd be able to make shoes!

love this simple, practical pattern - it had never occurred to me to make slippers before! I read the reviews and thought I'd give it a go instead of buying my toddler slippers for winter. The pattern was easy to follow and enjoyable to sew - and my little boy loves his slippers so much that I made a second pair for him to keep at his grandparents' place. Next challenge: trying my hand at some grown-up slippers for me!

Boot scooting pattern

Hit the sewing machine running today. I love a quick sew and easy instructions. This pattern gives you perfection every time. Exterior fabric used was a old woollen blanket. Then added some appliqué and hand embroidery for a pop of colour. The soles were from an old suede jacket purchased from Istanbul in 2010. I love repurposing fabrics from my wardrobe, no waste. The lining had a lovely cute print with bunnies and hedgehogs(see photos) Inter soles - I used some soft minky fabric for a soft walk. I just need to finish off with some cording around the ankles, then hey presto complete.

Super cute, super useful

Had a great time with this pattern to make some easy on and off boots for my toddler. Easy peasy. Changed some seaming methods to work better with my extra thick felted sweater wool. Slow going as I hand stitched it all
Didn'tt bother with top stitching, so the lining shows at the top. Which I kind of like.
Excited to make his size 6 boots. If I start them now, I might have them done in a timely fashion

Warm and cosy boots

I made the tie-back boots and aviator hat, using a pair of old work pants for the outside and sherpa for the lining for my 9 month-old. They do a great job of keeping head and feet warm and dry! Looking forward to making more of these as she grows.

Big love

Patterns of t+t are amazing! Easy to follow thanks to all the pics and instruction videos. The boots are my preschooler favorites! Made from a scrap of wool blanket, muslin inside and up cycled leather bag for sole.

Cute pattern

I've made this 3 times so far as xmas prezzies. Two pairs for small kids and one pair for my husband. I tried all three different turning methods and I think the adult version of turning through the sole is the best. The smaller kids versions are fiddly but worth it :) I'll definitely be making some for myself soon.

Fun project for Xmas Eve

I have been collecting off cuts and an old fleece hoody to use as appropriate fabrics for a while.
The pattern of 3 small pieces was easy to print and cut out. The instructions are very clear. I’m ready to go.
