Every spring I make my children new sandals, so this year I decided to make sandals with a punched design. Before I start making them I look for inspiration on the Internet.Read More
It’s that time of year again when I get out my leather stuff and start making sandals (while still wrapped in wool). These are my son’s new sandals. In this post, I share my process of making a sandal pattern using lasts.
These knotted strap sandals I made for my teenage daughter. Every time I make her a pair of sandals she gets out fabric scraps and cardboard and builds her own sandals that she wears proudly around the house.
Here is another sneak peek into my now really soon to be available e-book “How To Make Unique Leather Sandals”.
The above sandals are the first project of the book, they are easy to make as there are no straps to cut or buckles to attach, and they offer lots of space for decoration….
The e-book How To Make Leather Sandals is available now!
This is another preview into my upcoming e-book on making sandals at home. I’m in the finishing phase, it’s so exciting to finally come to an end with something I started 2 years ago!
How come I began making my own sandals? As with clothes I seldom found sandals, or shoes for that matter, that I really liked. I always had to settle for what was available.
I’m nearly finished writing a sandalmaking e-Book. These photos show one of the 8 sandals to make in the book.
Although I’ve been making sandals for over 10 years now, I’ve learned so many new things while making the projects for the book, researching everything from scratch as if I was a beginner.
They say the best way to get familiar with a subject is to write a book about it, this is so true. It certainly has taken my sandalmaking to a new level.
But it’s not only the content of the book that has challenged me to go new ways, it’s also the technical side about self-publishing an e-Book that opened a new world to me, I’m so fascinated by it all.
In the process of writing the book, I’ve taught myself product photography, in design and setting up a blog and landing page. Of course, there is no end to learning, something new to master always comes up.
