Sewing patterns for beginners should be both useful and eye-catching. Luckily, these Sewn Shoe Stuffies really fit the bill. Stick them inside your fanciest shows to keep them looking brand new. This is one of those simple sewing projects that you can complete in minutes. These stuffies come in handy if you plan to travel - they keep your shoes from getting smushed in your luggage. This is also a great gift idea for a friend - if they like to dress up or always seem to be on the move, they'll truly appreciate these handmade shoe stuffies.

Primary Technique: Sewing

Sewn by: Machine

Easy

Materials:

  • oly*fun™ Bubble Gum
  • poly-fil® polyester fiberfill
  • Embellishments - Buttons
  • Ribbon - 16″ of 1″ wide ribbon for each pair of shoe stuffies
  • Potpourri
  • Basic Sewing Supplies - Sewing Machine, Iron, Pressing cloth, Needle & Thread etc.

 

Instructions:

  1. When ironing oly*fun:  Set your iron to the silk setting and always use a pressing cloth. Both sides of oly*fun™ can be considered the right side of the fabric, the choice really is yours to make, however be consistent for a more finished look.


     
  2. Using the shoe of your choice, trace the outline of the shoe onto a piece of paper. Be sure the marker is perpendicular as you trace around the shoe to achieve a clear pattern. Using a copy machine, increase your pattern 140%.


     
  3. Lay the pattern on top of your color choice of oly*fun™ and cut out four pieces (two for each stuffie).


     
  4. Using a 1/4″ seam, sew around the outside edge of the Shoe Stuffie leaving the top edge open. Trim close to stitching line.


     
  5. Turn Shoe Stuffie right side out and press.  Fill the stuffie with Poly-Fil® and potpourri. Turn under raw edges 1/2″, insert an 8″ length of ribbon folded in half and then stitch across the top edge of the stuffie. Add a button if desired to finish your Shoe Stuffie.
     
  6. Create a matching set for yourself or a dear friend. For detailed instructions on how to make the shoe bags refer to the previous post entitled Shoe Bags featuring oly*fun™
