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.

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 [...]
This is the second pair of skulls & roses shoes – this time with an organza ribbon for a little bit of variety.
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, [...]
Sorry about my little disappearance there – I’ve been so busy making things that I haven’t been making time to write about them. Please prepare yourself for a flurry of posts!

Lucy requested a pair of shoes in the same black rose fabric as my original test pair. I was happy to oblige!
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. [...]

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 [...]
