how to: shoelaces

Over at the Lisette blog today I’m making shoelaces as stocking stuffers. Here is a pair I made using the Gingko Toss print from Cape Ann.



And speaking of Cape Ann, last week the Jolly Jabber (which is the Fat Quarter Shop blog) has a little interview with me about Cape Ann and a tiny preview of our next collection. Take a peek!

Update: I’m happy to report that this project is now available as one of my Creativebug workshops. Come join me there to make a pair together!



  1. Hey, that’s a great idea! Thanks for the tutorial. I will now be on the hunt for a good “boy” fabric.

    Custom shoelaces! Brilliant! Gotta make those! Thanks for solving a piece of the stocking stuffer/neighbor kids gift mystery!!

    Wow! shoelaces. Who would think. I have to make some of those! Thanks.

    I was looking at these today and thinking to myself…who knew you could make your own shoelaces?!? Then I thought, I wish Oliver + S would make some dress-up patterns…they’d be awesome at it, I’m sure! 🙂

    Thank you so much for the free popover dress pattern I made my girls a dress each and they were so happy.

    Few years ago I was looking for interesting shoe laces and never found… never thought about sewing them.
    Thank you for great idea.
    Wonder if i can use some plastic for ends instead that I can melt with lighter or something
