Miss Barbara- I've already been buying stuff too! I just couldn't help it. Although I haven't had time to start making anything yet.

So glad you liked them, Barbalot! I haven't been home in a few days because I slept at school to study for finals, so I haven't checked my mail for your package yet Cry Can't wait, though.

Going to start this weekend! I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to do any of the shirts, but I'm excited to get started this weekend.

Yay! I'm excited to see what sex I'll be making these for. I haven't been to Craftster in a loooong time, but I was sucked back in by the cuteness of this swap, even though I don't have little ones, I'll be forcing the onesies on my friend's baby Smiley

wow those are awesome! on a scale from 1-10 (10 being highest) how hard was this project w/ sewing and stuff? i'd like to attempt but i lack the sewing skills..heh..thanks! Smiley

Thanks Smiley  I'd say they were pretty easy, maybe a 3 or 4, just because it was a bit tricky to finish the edges where I put the bias tape, and it was sort of hard to turn them right side out after sewing the fabric to the soles.  Otherwise it's fairly straightforward.  Good luck and don't be afraid of the shoes!

awesome awesome awesome! Great job on braving the feared shoe-making!!!
 
One question - where is the SAS Fabric store? I live in Phx too, and so far I haven't found any pleather. And it sounds like a place to get a lot of stuff for cheap (?) ... hopefully Wink

Thanks!

Thank you  Cheesy  Yeah, SAS is great for cheap stuff, they also have a lot of extra wide fabrics for bedspreads and stuff.  It's a bit daunting when you walk in though because it's kind of unorganized.  They have some other hard to find random stuff, too.

The one I've been to is on Indian School Rd. and 11th St.  Here's the address for it: 
1111 E Indian School Rd
Phoenix, AZ 85014

I googled SAS Fabrics and found another one on 19th Ave, between Peoria Ave and Dunlap:
9840 N 19th Ave
Phoenix, AZ 85021

I think there's one in Tempe as well.  Hope that helps!  And you might try Wal-Mart for the pleather, which is where I got mine.

omg:) they are so uber cute! i love them!

i am too scared to make them because i don't want them to be blobs- but you have inspired me!

I have a question, does anybody think that we could make pointy versions of these?

xx pbl

Hmm, now there's an idea (like I need more pointy toed shoes in my closet!).  I think that would work fine, but it might work best if the sole was stiffer, so maybe use a craft weight interfacing on the inside of the soles?  Let us know if you figure out this mystery  Shocked

i shall marry this shoe as soon as i break it off with my bf Wink
where did you get the material for the bottom of the shoe?


I've actually had that material sitting in my scrap pile for months, and I think I originally got it at Wal-Mart.  I also used interfacing and black fabric for the soles to make them sturdier. 

I don't know if you guys have a store like this near you, but here in Phoenix there's this place called SAS Fabrics and it's basically a giant warehouse full of fabric and notions.  You can get a lot of it by the pound, and they always have a leather scrap box where you can get bits and pieces of real leather and suede by the pound...if you know of a place like this in your town you could try there for leather.  Good luck!

p.s. Thank you everyone for you nice comments!

Thank you so much! Wow, your seam is really invisible...I kept staring hard at the inside of your bag and couldn't see anything! Thank you for the great tutorial!  Cheesy

Haha, I think it must have been the flash that minimized the seam visibility because when I look at my bag I can see it a lot more.  I've drawn some lines on the pic to show you where they are (I think there are three seams because I sewed the lining folded over before I sewed it to the bag...or something!).  And you're most welcome  Smiley

I was scared at the idea of making those shoes, and terribly afraid of them not having any support. However you did an excellent job! They look wonderful...about how much fabric would you say you used?

<3, Dana

Thank you!  I was scared too, I was preparing myself for some blob like misformed thing of a shoe, but they actually turned out great Smiley  I used very little fabric, I'd say about a 1/3 of a yard of each fabric- even less for the soles (I used a double layer of pleather to make it thicker).

Aight...I feel kinda dumb, since everyone else seems to have figured it out, but I'm really confused about step 13. How did you secure the band neatly to the bag without there being a huge seam that's visible on the inside of the bag? I don't know if that makes sense or not...basically, how did you manage to only sew the band to the outside portion of the bag and not the lining?  Huh

I totally understand your question, and it's not dumb don't worry Wink  I actually did sew through the lining as well when I did this step, but I chose a thread color to match the lining (sort of).  Just try and make it a neat line, and it will look just fine even though you'll see the thread.  Did that make sense??
