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.


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