a little tutorial from ms. at...a shoes pouch

today, my other crafty friend came by my house to borrow the sewing machine...this friend of mine is usually at my place before her diving trip...because she has so many little projects she needs done for her trip (like making a diving cap, diving tag, etc etc).  Today, she made herself some sort of pouch for her underwater lens (with velcro and all)...then, she saw this unwanted pants (ms. lipsie's hair) and decided to make it into her shoes voila...a shoes bag hehehehehe...after she finished the bag..I thought it was rather plain so then I appliqued my interpretation of shoe into the pouch (OK...I have to admit I'm not talented in the drawing department) then put in those 3 little buttons :)...very easy...she said it's a 3 minutes pouch....all you have to do:

1. Cut a piece of one side of your unwanted pants (she used the bottom edge hence no further sewing needed for the top where the buttons are)
2. Sew the bottom close
3. If you're using the middle side of your pants' leg then you have to fold the top twice and sew so there won't be any raw edges
4. Install the can use all kinds of buttons...I use snap ons because they're so easy and sew-less hehehehehe
5. Done! or you can applique whatever you want or put one of your little crochet piece as a decoration (I was going to do that...but she gave me this "look" of saying it's only a shoes, no pretty crochet)


  1. Hi, I've been checking out your creations at flickr and i'm very impressed.

  2. What do you mean, you can't draw? The shoe applique is PERFECT!!

    I linked to your tutorial on Craft Gossip Sewing:


  3. I wished I had shoes like thos on the pouch! They are made for dancing :-)

    Best, Carolin
