Witchy Shoes

I had so much fun making these Witchy Shoes and they only cost about a dollar to make.  Wouldn’t they be fun hanging on a hook or a cabinet knob?

Here’s what you need to make a pair of your own:

  • muslin 
  • black acrylic paint
  • sponge brush
  • fiberfill
  • scraps of fabric
  • twine
  1. Here is my pattern.  Shoe.  Print it out and cut it out.  I like to transfer my patterns onto a manila file folder or light cardboard for easier transfer.

2.  Draw around the pattern onto muslin using pencil.  This is the sewing line.  

3.  Cut around the line adding a half inch seem allowance.  

4.  Sew around this line leaving an opening in the back of the shoe for turning and stuffing.

5.  Cut notches on the curves and turn right side out.

6.  Stuff tightly.

7.  Slip stitch opening closed.

8.  Brush black paint over the shoes.  Let dry.  It may take two coats of paint.

9.  Using black waxed twine threaded onto a needle add “laces” to the front.

10.  Using the same twine attach the shoes together at the back tip.

11.  Add patches and other touches to make them your own.

12.  Enjoy!

  1. What a fun and cute craft! I may have to try and make this. I am pinning this!

  2. These are absolutely adorable and I just might have to make them as a hat-pin cushion.
