A Free Trainer Shoe Quilt Block to Applique

Make this Trainer Shoe block for your shoe quilt

free applique shoe block

This free appliqué shoe pattern is meant to be done using the fusible web technique of appliqué rather than turning under the edges and hand appliquéing. But, if you like to appliqué by hand - use your favorite technique. 

A larger color version of this layout block is on this page.

Feel free to use any raw edge applique techniques which you enjoy to make it more casual looking. Some of the top trim could be done with ultrasuede for a realistic texture. The laces could be done with a real shoe laces couched on to the surface.

The free applique pattern shown with the templates is meant to be an 9" finished block to the outer edges of the background, but you may want to enlarge the templates to a larger size.  The little vertical bar on the drawings is (if you enlarge the templates to make an 9" block) meant to be .5 x 2" inches.

Fabric Choices? You may use solid color or pattern fabric. Get wild or tame - but make sure there is contrast between the fabric in different sections in the different areas so the sandal will be distinct.
