Quite some time ago, (which my computer photo filing system informs me was back in April) I tested a the Wayfarer Shoes pattern for the designer formally known as ‘Big Little’ (I’ve always wanted to say something like that!) For those of you that hasn’t already heard, Big Little has now re-branded under the amazing and very fitting name of Twig & Tale.
Twig & Tale patterns are distinct from others out there in the PDF pattern market, in that they are whimsical, inspired by nature and play and they emphasise the use of recycled materials and beautiful embroidery!
Anyway, back to these cute little shoes! Wayfarer Shoes are fully reversible, use minimal fabric and are super quick and easy to make! The pattern features are as follows:
- Extensive size range 0-3 months - approximately 9 years
- Choose size bundle using dropdown menu when ordering
- Fully lined, no exposed seams
- Skill level: Beginner - adventurous beginner
You can also use recycled fabrics as I have done here (a recycled op-shopped/ thrifted dog blanket for the main, a vintage pillowcase for the inner and an old pair of jeans for the sole.)
I also decided to embroider them using this jasmine design, which is one of a few embroidery options that are contained within the tutorial. I really love the way the embroidery looks!
My little one informs me that they are nice and cosy and comfy too!
Go and grab yourself a copy of the pattern and create your own pair of gorgeous little shoes!
