Dritz Embroidered Floral Wedge Espadrilles

Categories: Accessory, Fashion Accessories, Spring, Summer

I made these Dritz Embroidered Floral Wedge Espadrilles with Dritz’s new wedge espadrille soles, from their customizable espadrilles line. I used some Fairfield World Smooth fusible interfacing to give the fabric uppers extra support for general wear and floral embroidery. To add color to the wedge soles, I used DecoArt Americana Acrylic paints, in colors that matched the embroidery floss. For my 2nd pair of Dritz espadrilles, I wanted them to reflect my art style. My 1st pair, Polka Dot Ankle Wraps Espadrilles, are flat using the available Dritz fabrics. While I’ve been doing embroidery for about 30 years (no joke!), if you are a beginner, I found this awesome video that shows 7 Basic Embroidery Stitches. For this project, I used chain stitches, French knots, and blanket stitch. Blanket stitch on a 3D object…the edge of the shoes…is trickier than on flat fabric, but I found this awesome Dritz espadrille blanket stitch video on Instagram by Deepika Prakash. Head over to my blog, Crafty Lady Abby, to make your own Dritz Embroidered Floral Wedge Espadrilles.
