Published in 1976
ISBN 0-684-14606-1

If you've ever wanted to make mocassins, ballet flats, mukluks, tabis, sandals, you need to see this book! It provides patterns (that need to be transferred and enlarged for your footsize) and instructions for many types of shoes. I was so excited when I found this book I just had to post about it. I've seen a few auctions here and there on the internet also, to purchase it for a few bucks. Definitely worth the money!

Quite a number of the projects call for purchasing soles from retailers that might not be around any more. I have not looked into purchasing shoe soles - maybe it is easier than I think, but just wanted  to let you know that a lot of these projects suggest store-bought soles or recycling soles off your old shoes.

Anyhoo, if I had a photo of the cover, I'd include it but I dont. Let me know if you've used this book for any of your projects!

WOW! Thanks for sharing that. I just went on Amazon and bought this book for $1.34 plus $3.49 shipping....so I'll be excited to get it and check it out. Can't beat that price!

Does the book reccomend certain materials that may be hard for an every-day person to come by?
Also, are the intructions a bit more advanced, or are they easy enough for extreme newbies to handle?
I'd love to make my own sandals~ So many of them out there today, are just too uncomfortable, or really too strange.

Sora: I've... I've been having these weird thoughts lately. Like...Is any of this real... Or not?
