Shoe time!

One of my favourite Ladybird books was The Elves and the Shoemaker. We’re talking a long, long time ago but I can still remember those gorgeous illustrations of Georgian shoes made by the elves!

So I decided to make some Georgian shoe bags, hand printed in Georgian Bath!

I spent a few days researching shoes on the fantastic V&A museum website, and drawing lots of variations of these until I settled on this design.

They’re perfect for packing shoes in your suitcase, and are made from lightweight cotton calico with a drawstring closure.

They’ll soon be available to buy in my Etsy shop and also in the Bath Visitor Centre shop (from September).
