If you’re human, you probably love pizza. Heck, even if you’re a cat who got online and accidentally found my blog while searching for ways to deal with its kittenhood issues, you still probably love pizza. It’s comfort food, it’s mobile food, it’s party food, it’s netflix and chill food. You don’t mind if you have to eat it again, cold, the next morning. So you probably wouldn’t mind wearing a homage on your shoes, either. Let’s get to work!

What you need: 

  • espadrilles or canvas shoes 
  • embroidery thread in red, yellow, brown 
  • embroidery needle
  • trick marker 
  • scissors

Start by filling the tops of the shoes with paper or cloth to make a relatively straight surface to draw on. Then draw a slice of pizza on each shoe. I free-handed mine, without worrying very much about it looking neat – the trick marker disappears by itself after a few hours. I started with a triangle rounded at the small side, then added a scallop detail on the rounded side. I drew a couple of circles and half circles inside, then added the dripping cheese effect.

Thread your needle with the brown color. To make it look more natural, I paired a brown thread with a beige one. Make a small knot and, starting from the inside of the shoes, stitch the crust of the pizza slice. Try to make most of the stitches on the outside, so the thread inside doesn’t bother your feet.

In a similar way, embroider the pizza itself. For this part, I used a beige thread and a yellow one together.

Finally, you can fill in the tomato slices. For this step, I used red and pink thread together. Repeat for the other shoe and you’re ready to go out for pizza! This project took me about 1 1/2 hours, but you could make it faster or slower, depending on your sewing skills. Enjoy!
