Loafers and penny loafers, have gotta be up there with one of the most classic shoe styles around! Unisex and versatile, this shoe is the ideal trans-seasonal style for year-round wear.
To help you get started, we've made a downloadable flat loafer slider pattern in sizes EU 35 - 44 (that's UK 2 - 11), which you can print at home. Once you've nailed this style, you'll know the fundamentals of making loafers and can totally create loafer sliders of your own design. ;)
In an effort to make shoemaking a more accessible craft, we've made this downloadable shoe pattern easily printable from home, and have included a step-by-step instructions to help you along the shoemaking process.
The PDF shoe pattern is available for instant download and prints on sheets of A4 or Letter size paper. All you have to do is print at 100%, cut out the patterns, and tape together any that have been broken up to fit on the page.
What you'll need:
- Upper and lining materials of your choice.
- Matching polyester thread.
- A domestic flatbed sewing machine, with a denim or leather needle.
- Water-based glue and a safety beveler, which you can find in our Beginners Shoemaking Tool Kit.
