Dritz Espadrilles fabrics

Fashion Fabrics

For fabulous feet.

Fashion fabrics in solids, stripes and polka dots should get the wheels turning. Choose lining fabrics for the inside of your espadrilles; they coordinate nicely with the fashion fabrics in color and scale. Both are 100% cotton and come in a package of 16” x 22” – perfect for one pair of espadrilles.

Glass head pins hold fabric in place on Dritz DIY Espadrilles

Glass Head Pins

Long and strong.

In the course of making DIY espadrilles, we discovered some sewing supplies that make certain tasks easier. For example, holding the fabric in place on the soles is best accomplished with the Dritz Espadrilles glass head pins. They are extra strong and have a longer length to penetrate fabric and soles.
