    Another great pattern

    I made the adult slippers/shoes first (the pink ones)- the slight gathering at the toes was a little tricky - but the instructions were very clear. Use the ones in the PDF rather than the summary page until you now what you are doing. I bought puffer paint as suggested by some FB contributors and put it on the soles to make them non-slip, which worked well. Sizing was good - follow the directions when you measure your feet. I have just finished a toddler’s pair but my grandson hasn’t had a chance to try them on - made with odd scraps of material! I think they were a little simpler to make as they didn’t have the gathers. Looking forward to making some more in warmer material.

    Quick, easy, perfect

    Really quick project (1 evening, even for a beginner, which I am). The result is stunning. The wayfarers make the perfect gift for a baby or child.

    Perfect for embroidery!

    I made folklore-ish embroidery on feltet wool inspired by Russian illustrator Ivan Bilibin. Also cut the outer soles from leather, which I cannot recommend enough- makes the shoes endlessly more durable…

    Wayfarer shoes

    I made 3 pairs of baby slippers. I was addicted after the first pair. Because I bought the bundle I was able to make my husband a pair size 9.5. I made them all with left over sewing scraps mostly flannel and knit. I put no slip soles on my husband’s. Next I will make a pair for myself and more for the grandchildren. What is nice is as they grow the pattern allows for bigger sizes from infant to child to adult. I love them so much! Thank you Twig and Tail I am so glad I found you. I learned to embroider from your site and in the spring I will make hats from your free hat pattern. ♥️

    Lovely little pattern

    I really enjoyed sewing up these slippers. They are so cute. I did find I had to size up 2 sizes from the foot guide to get a roomy fit. I will try adding a rubber sole onto the next ones for longevity.

    Wayfarers are addictive!

    Warning, once you’ve started making these you won’t want to stop! 😁
    They are such a lovely pattern, simple to sew in an hour and totally comfy to wear around the house.
    I recommend you make one for every member of the family and more!

    Fun for little feet

    I enjoyed the video tutorials for this pattern and persevered even though I knew the shoes were too small as I progressed. My advice is to cut at least 2 sizes bigger than the foot as you need that for the seam allowances. I modified the top on the bigger pair to look more ballet-shoe like. Fun!
