Victorian Shoe Etui from Acorn House Designs

Victorian Shoe Etui

Create your own heirloom piece.

Based on a Victorian-era antique I purchased at market, I knew immediately I was going to have to figure out a way to make my own. Well, a year later I have my version ready to unveil. It was a year of trial and lots of error, but I hope you'll be pleased with the results. I've taken it upon myself to do most of the hard part for you. Each piece of your shoe has been pain-stakingly handmade with care, so that you will be able to easily create your own incredible heirloom. Enjoy!

Chart includes finishing instructions, pattern for lid, the shoe upper, heel/sole, hinge pins(2) and tassel brad.
