LIMITED EDITION! The Artist Series kit from Leilani of Studio Gypsy includes all the basic supplies to make shoes as well as a special PDF instructional how-to from Leilani herself. Do not miss this kit for watercolor and hand-stitched espadrilles! (Note: this kit comes with a selection of embroidery floss and canvas fabric but watercolor crayons are NOT included).

This special kit includes:
+ Full-color, photographed PDF instructions and a special stitches gallery
+ my instruction booklet for supplementary instructions
+ conventional pattern from size EU 36-42
+ interfacing
+ canvas and lining fabric
+ a random selection of three embroidery flosses (leave a note for any preferences!)
+ shoe soles
+ accompanying tools including pins, needles, wax and needle pullers.

YOU WILL NEED to source your own watercolors; Leilani recommends any type of watercolors including watercolor crayons. These do not come included in the kit. PDF instructions include a list of all needed supplies.

Give yourself the gift of slow time spent making these playful, stunning shoes!

When you order the kit, please include your EMAIL ADDRESS if you would like me to send the PDF ahead of time. It will also be printed in the kit.

This kit is specially tailored to help you create watercolor and hand-stitched espadrilles. It's special special!  You can grab this kit now but sales will end on February 2nd! It's a Limited Edition part of my Artist Series.

Simply choose your shoe size and I'll send you what you need for the rest. Shoe sizes are in the European size range. Please check the size chart for the US equivalent and to determine your size. I also carry a handful of sizes 2-5 U.S., reach out if you need that size. I'm happy to help!

I do my very best to make my kits eco-friendly including a recycled box, fabric scraps for decorative components and minimizing use of plastic in an attempt to be as low-waste as possible. Even my business card is made out of old t-shirts!

Please note: This listing is for a kit; It's a great project for you or someone else to make very special espadrille shoes. It is not, however, the sale of a completed pair of shoes. :)
