This classic summer shoe is yours for the making.
For fabulous feet.
Fashion fabrics in solids, stripes and polka dots should get the wheels turning. Choose lining fabrics for the inside of your espadrilles; they coordinate nicely with the fashion fabrics in color and scale. Both are 100% cotton and come in a package of 16” x 22” – perfect for one pair of espadrilles.
Glass Head Pins
Long and strong.
In the course of making DIY espadrilles, we discovered some sewing supplies that make certain tasks easier. For example, holding the fabric in place on the soles is best accomplished with the Dritz Espadrilles glass head pins. They are extra strong and have a longer length to penetrate fabric and soles.
Soles with soul.
Fun for the whole family here! You can make espadrilles for yourself, or kids and toddlers. Each style comes in a variety of sole sizes and each package contains complete instructions and sewing patterns. Jump to the item page for the size you wish to make and you’ll find the PDF files right here on our website, too!
