DIY Princess shoes Tutorial

Emma has been asking for princess shoes for a very long time, so I decided to make her some.

DIY Princess Shoes Tutorial


  • plastic canvas
  • felt
  • embroidery floss
  • scissors
  • thread

Here are the pieces (minus the decorative flower). I just traced her foot to make the pattern for the soles, and then stretched fabric over the top of her foot to figure out size/shape for that piece.


I stitched everything together by hand using a blanket stitch. Here are the finished shoes:


And again on Emma’s feet:


If I were to make these again, I would make the top panel fit more snugly, and I would probably stitch two layers of felt together for the top panel to make it more durable. A closed-toe version is another option, but Emma definitely had open-toe shoes in mind when she was talking about princess shoes, so that’s what we made!

  1. You are amazing, MaryAnne. I will definitely keep this in mind for when Rachel gets old enough to want princess shoes. Since we call her Princess all the time her time will come. :) And I can’t wait!

  2. That’s a great idea! My 3 girls would love this. Ooh, and we have a birthday coming up next month. Thank you!
