Hi Darlings! So today I thought it would be fun to share my shoe-making journey. I have really loved learning how to make my own shoes and now that it has been well over a year I wanted to share my thoughts. Below is a video I made sharing how I learned, the courses I used, and a look back at what I have made so far. (VIDEO AT END)


LINK TO COURSES

I mentioned this in the video but here is the course I purchased to start my journey:

MY SHOES TO DATE

Here are the first two pairs of sneakers I made using the Shoe Surgeon Course, this course only teaches sneaker decon-recon.



HERE ARE MY HEELS!

I put them in order of when I made them...


This was my first and second pair, the ones below were next.



This is the shoe I made mom for mothers day. I didn't get a good pic because I only made a reel for it but you can watch it HERE.



These two are special to me because they were the first straps I ever made and also my first pair of platforms.



This is my last make and I think my best pair yet! It's great to see that just like sewing or any other craft, the more you practice the better you get.
