This pattern makes a comfortable set of plantigrade footpaws for your costume! What is “plantigrade?” it describes a form of locomotion for an animal, but it is also the physical appearance of what these feet look like. It essentially means the feet of a creature that walks on its full foot, from the toes to the heel, on the ground.

It includes a detailed tutorial for making and sewing the footpaws and liner with step-by-step instructions. Tutorial text is written in English. The pattern itself is designed to be printed. Included is letter-sized (8.5x11 inch) and a4-sized (210x297 mm) formatted PDFs for printing.

Super easy to use pattern and REALLY quick to make! I got both feet done in about 3 hours (and took my time doing it) much quicker and easier than the traditional foam method! Oh and in case anyone was wondering if the pattern works with fleece, it does! The fleece is a lot stretcher though so you can under-stuff the toes a bit.

An excellent tutorial and pattern that is thorough and easy to follow. I tried a different footpaw pattern from a different maker and found it to be confusing with scarce instructions. But I knew that buying a Matricies tutorial, I would be in good hands (paws?). I combined it with Matricies' "Creating Liners and Soles for Stuffed Footpaws" tutorial and ended up with some very nice looking, and well fitting footpaws! Thanks!

The pattern works perfectly! Super easy to make and instructions explained everything perfectly! I hand sewed mine and added an outdoor safe bottoms to it! I cannot wait to make more!
