These patterns are incredible. The designs are beautiful, the instructions are magnificent and the outcome is just gorgeous. The best PDF patterns I have ever used!

wild about Wild Things Shoes

These little shoes are amazing! I am making a bunch for a school fundraiser. Such a great way to use up little scraps of precious fabrics. It takes about an hour to make one pair (if you omit the face and ears). The sizing seems a wee tad on the small side, but then again the seam allowance is only 1/4 inch and any variation to that could really change the finished shoe size. I am experienced but not expert and it is possible my seams don't always stay at 1/4 inch. I highly recommend this pattern. Every single shoe you finish will make your heart sing!!

Wild Things shoes

very easy to follow - a great pattern!

even for beginners!

At first I was a bit afraid because I thought sewing the shoes would be too complicated but for my surprise it was totally opposite. The instructions are easy to understand even for a beginner like me. I'm really pleased with the pattern! :D

Shoes for big kids

I love these! So quick and easy to make. Only tricky bit was turning them inside out, but that was my fault because I didn't read the instructions fully (quite experienced, so usually just skim read!), and didn't leave a big enough gap to pull through easily.
