Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Make shoes that look stylish and feel great! Once you create your first beautiful pair, it won't be your last. The basic techniques are simple enough for beginners. And it's fun to make shoes distinctively yours--through your choice of materials and the many ways you can decorate them. A silk brocade scruff hints of silver-screen glamour and sheer luxury, while polar fleece slippers are cozy at-home footwear. In the warm weather, you'll want the Mediterranean T-strap sandal with a vamp that's woven in warm, bright-colored leather--it evokes sunny climes. Even little feet will be well shod: dress them up in fancy punched-design shoes in the softest leathers. Once you know the secrets of pattern-making, every pair can be custom-tailored to your feet so they fit perfectly. Now, how many store-bought shoes can you say that about?

Synopsis:

"...covers the fundamentals of shoemaking, including pictures, sidebars with flair..., and great instructions for techniques. One after another, the approximately 30 patterns proceed--each one more appealing than the last--from an apple pie-color sandal to a Sante Fe-like desert sunrise moccasin. Templates appended."--Booklist.
