Gabrielle is one of four applique designs that are just right for shoe lovers. It’s the first in my series of shoe designs I call my “shoe gallery”. I designed these fun, colorful shoes several years ago, when I started designing and painting needlepoint canvases, and they were such a hit! I’ve used them on note cards, in calendars…even Christmas cards.
If you love shoes and fashion, you’ll love Gabrielle. I was inspired by the style of fashion icon Coco Chanel. Gabrielle is a spectator T-strap pump, embellished with a metallic chain T-strap and coordinating button “closure.” It’s tres chic!
These stylish shoe designs make fashionable gifts for the shoe lovers in your life. Create pillows, wall hangings, quilt blocks, and more. If you can sew, you can easily follow these patterns. Make a few (or all) of my shoe designs for a fun grouping on sofa or wall!
You’ll find easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions that walk you through creating a pillow or wall hanging. Each design combines applique, quilting and three-dimensional accents.
Another great thing about the “shoe gallery” patterns is their versatility. These shoe pattern designs can be used for other DIY art projects, as well. Here are just a few ideas:
- Trace and paint them onto canvases, wooden signs, walls, floors, even furniture and plates
- Create a stencil by tracing the pattern onto stencil plastic and sponge-paint them on all of the stuff above.
- Roll out fondant and use the pattern or stencil to cut out decorative accents for cakes.
- Create banners, table signs and more by tracing on card stock, cutting and assembling pieces.
