Skill Level: Adventurous beginner
Make old things new again! Twig & Tale patterns pair wonderfully with recycled fabrics. Look to accidentally shrunken sweaters, suiting weight wool skirts or trousers and leather/corduroy garments for inspiration.

Exterior: This pattern is suitable for most light-to-medium weight woven fabrics. Quilting cotton, linen and wool blends are my favourites.
Lining: Lightweight cotton.
Soles: Corduroy, denim, or similar sturdy fabric. For shoes intended for a walking baby, please be aware that fabric soles can be slippery, so applying a non-slip treatment is recommended.
Ears: A non-fray fabric (felt, fleece, suede, leather) is recommended so that you can use a single layer.
These little shoes can be also be made from upcycled materials such as felted lightweight woolen jumpers, embroidered linens, woolen blankets (for the larger sizes in particular), vintage sheets and many articles of clothing with meaning, such as Daddy’s favourite shirt or Grandma’s dress.
