Everything you need to create espadrille shoes for yourself and your child in one beautiful package! This kit includes your choice of stunning, lush fabric! The Espadrilles MY FEET & YOURS Kit is perfect for getting you started making your favorite little person their own shoes to match yours. It's also pretty enough to give as a gift to a new mama. It's such a fun project for a birthday or Mother's Day gift for a crafty mama (or papa!).

I hand make many of the kit accessories and include my own adult and child 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 make a note of your choice of stunning, unique fabric.
Additionally, Please 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.
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 Twig, Ocean or Midnight because they are super soft, yard-dyed and fully organic. Great for housing your toes. :) Please leave a comment if you would like to specify your lining fabric and I will make sure to include your preference.
Choose your shoe size and I will pack it all up for you! Please view the size chart in the listing for assistance picking the correct size (scroll through the photos for the size chart). It's best to measure your foot from heel to toe (stand on a ruler!) and compare those measurements to the size chart. Having a hard time choosing the size? I know that sizing can be tough, please refer to each size chart for more information and feel free to reach out.
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 detailed look at every component.
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.

I’m squealing! The most adorably packaged kits, with a personalized message, and you can just feel the love that was put into it. I reached out with a question before ordering and almost immediately got a response that answered all my questions, also shipped and delivered within the week. Will 100% order again. The fact this comes with absolutely everything you need (-sewing machine) I would definitely recommend this as a gift for a sewing buddy!
Thoughtfully built kit that includes every little thing you might need.
This was such a fun package to get! I love my new espadrilles and they turned out great! The directions were easy to follow. Thank you!
