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!
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
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.
