DIY Embroidered Espadrilles


I recently bought a pair of espadrilles for my Little Button and although I liked them when I saw them in the shop I thought they were a tad plain when I got them home. Therefore, out came the embroidery threads to jazz them up.

For this project you will need:

  • Pair of espadrilles
  • Embroidery threads
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

  1. Begin by choosing your design and colour scheme. I sketched out a few ideas on paper first, then picked my favourite pattern, and drew that directly onto the shoes using a pencil.

2. Then simply get stitching! I used a combination of cross stitch, running stitch and back stitch.

3. Every time you finish with one colour, make sure you tie a knot on the inside. Keep the inside as neat and tidy as you can so your Little Button doesn’t get his or her toes tangled on stray bits of thread.embroidered espadrilles diy

This is one of the first craft projects in ages I’ve done while sat on the sofa watching TV. It was bliss!
