Making something for my shoes – week-end DYI

Going back to reality after very short holidays is very difficult. I am sure it is a very common feeling. Fortunately the rainy weather with gray days is helping in this process.

Making a small fast things is helping as well. So I decided to make a shoe inserts for my pumps. I have already had one pair which I find very useful – it keeps my shoes in shape.

I use it as an example to make a pattern. The making process is very simple.

I used canvas as a basic fabric. In this case I use some pieces I had over after making few muslins.

I used a band/ribbon from my stash. I have to admit it is a good project to accommodate scraps/left overs from other projects.

I was making 12 inserts at the same time so to speed up the sewing process I was putting one insert after another under the foot. I did not sew back at the end (I do it very seldom) I have just shortened the seam.

I have trimmed the seams with pinking shears.

I decided to fill in the inserts not only with the sawdust (left overs after making my Tailor’s hams) but lavendel as well.

The last step was just to attach the band and sew the lower edge.

Here they are! READY to use.

It is very simple and fast project – very rewarding. However when I put all inserts to my shoes I have realised I need more of them! I did not know I have so many shoes…
