 I chose to keep the colour palette simple and stitched the design on unbleached calico, using just backstitch and satin on the front of the shoe. It looks great mounted in a hoop but I also thought it would look good on something practical too.

 So I turned it in to a show bag, perfect to keep that special pair dust free and protected from the sun. Why not download the pattern from my Etsy store and make one for your special pair. Wedding shoes would be perfect stored in this cute bag.

To make it I just cut two large rectangles of calico. Check that your shoes will fit. Size dependant. I only have very small feet. Then stitch the design on one rectangle of calico. Zig Zag stitch the sides and bottom and turn the top edge and stitch for a neat finish. Place the two sides together, right sides facing in. Pin together sandwiching a length of ribbon one one edge to make the tie. Stitch around the sides and bottom. Turn out and there you have it!
