Never having had a sister, it sure was nice of my two brothers to marry some awesome sister-in-laws for me. One thing the three of us SIL’s love (besides my brothers, of course) is shoes. We share similar tastes in footwear as well as the same shoe size. (They even own a pair of these, my faves!)
Kris, of gingersnap fame, is having a birthday this week. For her gift I made a set of shoe bags out of some yummy thrifted sheets. Kris and my brother travel frequently so having these will come in handy for her when it is time to pack for the next trip. Shoe bags keep your clothes clean and your shoes protected and organized!
1) With fabric folded, cut a rectangle about 13″ x 18″. The fold will be the bottom of the bag. About 2 1/2″ below the top edge, make a 1/4″ snip into the one side of the rectangle, through both front and back layers. (metal ruler shown for scale, not to be used with rotary cutter.)
2) Fold the 2 1/2″ area above the snip towards the wrong side and hem. Repeat for the back. (Pay no attention to the lack of continuity with the fabric print!) With right sides together, sew the rest of this side seam and the remaining side seam using 1/4″ seam allowance.
(If you’re wondering about the shoes in the photos, they are mine, all mine and are not part of my sister-in-law’s gift! I love her but I gotta draw the line somewhere.)
