Scented Fabric Victorian Shoes

I am sure you’ll agree that the forms of Victorian era’s shoes and boots are very elegant and refined. So when I decided to sew a cute sachet I chose the Victorian shoe as a model. And of course I did not stop at one shoe! If you love vintage decor elements or just beautiful things you can try to make this kind of sachet.

You need to have:

  • Material for filling

  • Lavender or flavored filler (for example one of Fresh Scents)

  • Lace, ribbon, button, bead, buckle, brooch… whatever you like to decorate shoe

You need to do:

Cut the pattern out and apply a pencil contour to the fabric. Do it with a small allowance for seams. You will have two pieces (one in reflection). Cut the details out of fabric

Neatly sew details together except top hole

Fill shoe with filling and flavored filler

Sew top hole

After that you can decorate the shoe as you like. I chose some lace, which pulled in ruffles, and took a small button, imitating gem

Here is finished Victorian Shoe

I also recommend you to attach the string to the Shoe, so it can be hung

Look how different can be variations of Victorian Shoes. And all are tiny and very flavorful
