Thanks Twig + Tale

Thanks Twig + Tale for the tie back boots pattern. I made them from my old dressing gown with fabric from an old linen shirt as lining and leather off cuts for the sole. I use them for snuggly slipper boots (regular height, internal elastic) and love them. Plus they were easy to make.

Sweet tie-back boots.

I love this pattern so much. Its an easy to sew pattern, with so much opportunity to individualise. I opted to use ribbing, but will definitely make more with tie-back. Super cute!

This is my first pair of slippers I have made and it was so easy. This was a trail pair to see how hard it really was. I made it to match a diaper I already had. I can't wait to see how she likes them and how well they stay on her little feet. The smaller they are the cuter they are and a little more tricky to sew. This is a baby size 6. I used vintage corduroy and bamboo fleece lining.

Warm and cozy

This was another fun T+T pattern. I am trying to use up a stash of wool remnants and this worked great, and I had scored a thrifted suede shirt that I used for the toe. I may make a couple more pairs as gifts, and a short pair for myself. The calf adjustment is wonderful. I had some old outdoor-canvas laying around that I used on the sole, to make them waterproof for quick trips to the woodshed in a little snow.

Awesome Pattern

Very easy to follow. The calves of my baby are a bit too big to fit snuggly into the shoes. Using stretchy fabric would prevent that problem though. Love the finished shoes.

Tie back boots

I made the tie back boots for my little one. The instructions were very clear and they came together very easily. I used fleece on the inside and denim scraps on the outside with a suede outer sole. I made two pairs so one can be washed while he wears a pair. Always nice to have extra.

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.
