Happy February everyone! I can’t believe it’s already time for our second installment of the Artist Series for 2020. (Have you seen that post going around that says “January was a hard year but we made it”? Ha!) These cozy rosette espadrilles from Betz White are so special for me. I’m positively giddy about releasing them. It’s been a hard secret to keep! I’ve admired the creativity and ethos of everything Betz White does for years. I remember when her book Sewing Green was released; I was just diving into the blogging world and found that book a revelation. It’s a dream come true to collaborate with her on such fabulous espadrilles! Grab your kit here. These complete kits will only be on sale until March 3rd!
You are going to love these cozy rosette espadrilles. Not only are they stunningly beautiful but her how-to booklet comes with a thorough stitch glossary with easy to understand instructions as well as fully photograph step by steps. Betz has been teaching for a long time and she is a true pro. She even made a video! Check out all her videos including the rosette vid here.
Betz sourced the cheery blue wool and specific yarn colors herself so we know we’ve got the good stuff. These kits come with everything you need to create the shoes, Betz’s booklet along with my instruction booklet and pattern as well as the wool, thread, embroidery hoop and transfer pen. They’d make a fabulous Valentine’s gift for a crafter (or for yourself!). Basically, they make a great gift because they are a great project and every crafter’s February deserves that. Plus, the wool with keep your toes cozy all the way into spring.
SNAP up a complete kit quick! I think these are going to go fast.
