For Her Shoe:

Print out the template as shown. Finished shoe is approximately 9 inches high.

Using template A, cut one shoe out of cardboard for the backing and one out of felt.

Glue felt piece to cardboard. Cut a button flap C from this same colored felt and punch holes in each scallop with a hole punch.

Using template B, cut another shoe that is one quarter inch smaller than the first one from a contrasting piece of felt. On the wrong side of this piece, carefully spread about one half inch of glue all around the edges except across the top. Center carefully over first shoe and press in place.

Glue button flap along front edge of shoe. Let dry thoroughly. Make a ribbon loop on the back for hanging.

For His Cowboy Boot: Using template A, cut one piece from cardboard. Cut one piece of A and one piece B from dark felt. Cut B and C pieces from light felt.

Place light B piece over dark piece B and top stitch along top of B piece.

Using a meandering type of pattern, make decorative stitching on top half of boot to resemble leather work.

Sew B and C pieces to A piece, except along top edge. Glue felt boot to cardboard backing.

Make ribbon loop on back for hanging.
