Tri Cities, Wash...
I fell in love with this striped sweatshirt fabric several months ago, so I bought a few yards. It looked like it had so much rock-n-roll potential. This is the first thing I made with it. The skull/circle canvas I used on the soles of the shoes is such a great print, too. I’m glad I found a project where I could combine the two fabrics. I only wish I had made these before my babies stopped being babies.
The pattern for these shoes is found on Stardust Shoes’ blog http://stardustshoes.blogspot.com/2006/10/cloth-shoe-pattern.html (Thank you for providing a really great free pattern for the world, Joanna!)
I embroidered the patches on my Bernina. The hat pictured is from Simplicity 5316.
