HI GUYS! I wanted to share my latest shoemaking adventure. I picked up this printed leather at Tandy Leather a few weeks ago and I couldn't wait to make some shoes with it. I love a great platform so I decided to make some inspired by another pair of platforms I purchased last year.


I am obsessed with shoemaking and every time I make a pair of shoes I amaze myself, LOL! These were a lot of fun to make. I have made platforms before so this pair only took me about 5 hours from start to finish. We have an intro to shoemaking course on SEWITACADEMY.COM so if you are a member you can watch that course, if you are not a member check it out, you can even sign up for our free trial.


I bought a sewing machine for my shoemaking, it's an industrial machine that sews through layers and leather just like butter! It is the SAILRITE. It's such a compact but powerful machine and I am loving it.


THE LOOK!










Thank you for reading! if you have questions about shoemaking let me know in the comments.

Your shoes are beautiful and I have a question. Can the width be varied?

Yes, You would alter your last first by adding width and then you would make the shoes

MiMi G, you had said you worked on your regular sewing machine to make shoes before purchasing your Sailrite. Which machine did you use? I know mine wouldn’t be strong enough for shoes so I’d like to start pricing out something new. I'm also considering purchasing Amanda's shoe making classes so it will help out a bunch there too! Thank you!

I have both the “Sailrite fabricator and the Red Sailrite LSZ-…They sew like a dream and are work horse! I now have added to my collection the Juki 8700 straight, stitch industrial and the Juki 1181 in walking foot industrial for my leather handbags!

I can’t wait to learn how to make shoes Mimi!!! 🥰
