Today I was making some lavender filled shoes and I will show you step by step how to make them.
First you draw on a sturdy paper the shape of a vintage shoe and cut it out.
Put the shoe shape on top of the material and trace it.
Cut out the shoe with an additional centimeter for the seam.
Then you choose the material, I chose upholstery cotton for one and a lighter cotton, in colour and texture, for the other.
The grey shoe I filled with lavender and the lighter one with wading, I didn't use lavender for this one because the purple flowers would show through and make it look grey.
Stitch all around the shoe but leave an opening on top for turning and filling.
About the keys.... I'm just showing them off, I bought them in Lille, France a few years ago, I'm always on the look out for keys, chandelier crystal and vintage lace...
My lavender I get from.. you guessed it, France..
Today I bought too much lace again! I couldn't leave it... Cotton lace, when will I find that again?.... well in the next shop maybe and in the one after that...
This one is grey and off white, soo pretty!
OK... we add some lace, flowers and a bow.
and we are done.
Tomorrow I will be off with my daughter through the desert for about 8 hours...
with my camera of course, to share our adventure with you.
Have a wonderful weekend.
