Announcement    All kits now available in KIDS, TEEN and WOMENS sizes and be sure to look for the WEDGE shoe kits!

Make your own shoes! Everything you need to make a pair of bespoke espadrille shoes is available in these beautifully curated packages. All you need is a sewing machine and a few hours with a kit and you can tromp through the streets in handmade shoes. Amazing! Who knew it was so easy to become a shoe-maker?

Pick up one of the Starter Kits in fabric of your choice to have everything delivered to your door. Choose from the selection including landscapes, florals, evil eyes, beach stripes, abstracts, carefree summer and the classics. If you already have canvas or cotton-linen fabric (~1/3 yard) you love, grab one of the "I Got It" kits that come without fabric.

How it works:
1. Choose a Starter Kit (with fabric) or an I Got It kit (without fabric)
2. If you pick a Starter Kit, decide on your fabric option. Just choose what grabs you...they all make beautiful shoes. Leave me a note if you want to switch out the lining fabric (options are Twig or Midnight as pictured)
3. Pick the size of shoe sole. Sizes run big so if you are a half size, size down. My instruction booklet also comes with helpful tips for getting a good fit.
4. Prepare to dazzle yourself!

If you have already made a pair of shoes and would like to make a second pair but don't need ALL the accessories, pick up a Renewal Kit and I will send just what you need. PLEASE NOTE: I have recently added a listing for women with larger than size 9 feet, this kit includes everything except the shoe soles and I highly recommend buy shoe soles through Diegos Boutique here on Etsy...they are great quality and worth the price. :)

Please feel free to convo me with any additional questions. I can't wait to get your walking around in your handmade shoes.

Note: Making espadrilles DOES require a sewing machine and standard sewing supplies. All of the other specialty supplies arrive in your beautiful kit. These listings are for the sale of espadrille shoe-making kits NOT already constructed shoes.

Thank you.

xoxo,
Melissa Q.

About

Yes! You can make your own shoes! The Espadrilles Kits are a shoemaking DIY experience! They come with everything you need in a gift-worthy package.

Your feet are made for walking. You might as well tromp around in espadrilles you made with your own two hands! Espadrille shoes have been worn by artists and influencers for decades. Join the ranks of Picasso, Salvador Dali and Lauren Bacall with your own handmade pair. Just choose between the popular floral, striped, abstract or classic fabric choices that I lovingly chose because of how well they will work as espadrille fabrics. If you already have your own fabric you can grab one of the I GOT IT kits and I send you everything else you need. These kits also make a great gift for a crafty woman in your life or as a bachelorette activity (with champers ;) )
