And, it is a Free Pattern . Okay, technically, it's a Shoe Applique Tote Bag. But, the bag, although perfectly functional, is just a so-so felt rudimentary felt bag, whereas the applique placed on it deserves to shine.
To be even more precise, it is a Victorian Shoe. (Very much like the boots popular today). This set is cutely adorned with a little rick rack, sequins and seed beads. They are an absolutely perfect adornment for a tote bag - even if you are not hauling shoes. They would also be cute on a number of other things, I'm sure.
This pattern comes to us from a 1958 issue of McCalls Needlecraft. I love these old magazines. They are such reminders of where we came from. For Example, this bag has a chart to follow for the applique.
I'm planning on making a pair of these shoes on Friday. Perhaps you would like to as well. Just in case, I've listed in my shop as a Free Download.
Thanks for dropping by,
