Purple Organic Cotton Shoes

Laura requested that her shoes be a plain, dark colour, such as purple or red. This picture doesn’t really show the depth of colour in this lovely purple organic cotton. I used the same fabric inside and out, and was lucky enough to find a ribbon that matched almost exactly.

Nimby and Mer…

Photos © Fairysteps Oopsie, I might have had a little PayPal accident over at Fairysteps. Ren was making some pretty things from the same leather as my lovely handbag, so it would have been rude not to buy the matching purse, surely? No sooner had I popped it into my shopping cart than there was a [...]

Pink Suede Brogues

It’s been just over two years since I wrote about looking for a pair of pink suede brogues. I’ve had these for a little while now, and suddenly realised that I’d completely forgotten to mention them. They’re Dr Martens, obviously, the 3989 shoe, in hot pink suede. This colour seems to be sold out now, [...]

Colourful Flowery Shoes

Ooh, look, more shoes! Serena sent me this fabric from her stash. Aren’t the bright colours fabulous? This pair were slightly too small to fit onto my lasts, which means that you can see a bit more of the construction. All of the shoes so far have eight eyelets around the back of the heel. [...]

Skulls & Roses Shoes

This is the next pair of shoes – a pretty gothy pair with skulls and roses. I’ve actually made two pairs of these, and I’m extraordinarily tempted to make a third pair for myself I don’t want to make eleven identical posts about the prototype shoes, so I’m hoping that the fabulous variety of fabrics [...]

Spiderweb shoes

These are the first pair of shoes to emerge from my Shed – and aren’t they pretty? My friend Chris (who teaches quilting and makes quilts to commission) provided the fabric, which is covered with sparkly copper spiderwebs on a purple and green background. The shoes are lined with purple organic cotton, and I thought [...]
