Description

Everything you need to create kid-sized espadrille shoes in one beautiful package including lush floral fabric! The Espadrilles Kit is perfect for getting you started making your favorite little person their own shoes but it's pretty enough to give as a gift. Great for group crafting get-togethers such as modern baby showers or birthday events for crafty mamas.

This kit includes needles, espadrille thread, wax, needle puller, elastic, the necessary fabrics and interfacing, an instruction booklet, pattern, and shoe soles. I have hand-sewn many of the kit accessories and included my own booklet with fitting tips, a how-to for the classic reinforced toe as well as step-by-step instructions. Just pick the shoe size and choice of stunning floral fabric. Please leave a note if you would like an alternative color of yarn thread. I automatically include the bone-colored thread as it is classic but you can request from blue, black, white, pink and red if you would prefer.

Note: This project does require a sewing machine and knowledge of how to sew.

The Floral Fabric Collection includes a choice of:
+ Sienna Bloom
+ Metallic Midnight Garden
+ Blue Meadow
+ Canvas Peony
+ Midnight Peony


All fabrics are great for fussy cutting the perfect fun images for the shoe toe. :)

Every fabric is paired with an organic cotton that I have personally selected because it looks good with the fabric on the outside of the shoe. I use all Cloud 9 Fabric cirrus solids in either Ash, Ocean or Midnight because they are super soft, yard-dyed and fully organic. Great for housing your toes. :) Please leave a comment to request a specific lining fabric otherwise I send my favorite match.

Shoe soles run big so if you are a half size I recommend you choose a shoe sole a size down.
Having a hard time choosing the size? I know that sizing can be tough so I've pulled together a helpful size guide for getting the right shoe sole. Measure in inches, as straight as possible, from the heel to the top of the big toe.

I do my very best to make my kits eco-friendly including a recycled box, organic lining fabric and using fabric scraps for decorative components in an attempt to be as low-waste as possible. Even my business card is made out of old t-shirts! At this time, however, I am unable to source organic canvas fabric that is perfect for the outside of the shoes. Please see my blog, ahappystitch.com, for the post Eco-Responsibility & The Espadrille Kits for a complete run-down.

Please note: You will need a sewing machine and thread to complete this project and the instructions assume you know sewing basics. This listing is for a kit you or someone else may use to make espadrille shoes, it is not sale of a completed pair of shoes.

This kit has everything you need! I love the size customization of the shoe. Melissa’s instructions are clear and the quality of the materials are excellent. I’ve even ordered a different kit to try!

Amazing kit! Shipped quickly, beautifully packaged - a treat just to open the package! Easy to follow instructions with clear illustrations. Was concerned about matching pieces but easily enough material to match the toe pieces and the backs. Had to adjust size slightly when finished and added elastic along the heel top edge for a custom fit. Loved it! Would highly recommend.

I am over the moon about my espadrilles and the now 3 kits I have purchased from Melissa. The packaging was so intentional and lovely to open. I have NO complaints!! I’ve officially made a pair of shoes 💜💜 and I’m in love 😍
