I want to go straight home via the craft shop and start making some shoes! Mary Wales Loomis shows us how to make shoes in any height and from a variety of fabrics.
From making a last to attaching a heel and gluing a real leather sole it's all in her book 'Make Your Own Shoes'. I'm already mentally going through all the fabric and leather offcuts in my sewing room to see what I could use as shoe material.
