DIY: Melon Espadrilles
For a pair of melon espadrilles you will need:
A pair of espadrilles soles (I bought these from Prym)
green and pink fabric
green thread (something sturdy like bakers twine)
many many pins
a sewing machine
black fabric paint
a melon seed stamp (made mine from an old eraser)
espadrilles soles. I just had to cut it out and trace onto the fabric with Taylor's chalk. Easiest thing in the world. You need two green and two pink pieces for the front and back part each. Then trace the soles on green fabric as well. Cut with a seam allowance of about 1cm.
You can see very nicely in the picture above that I used very very cheap pins haha! I really don't know why I still keep them, there's not one straight pin left.
blanket stitch and up the sides with a simple back stitch and you're done!
Congratulations, you just made a pair of shoes!
