I chose to make them in leather rather than the vinyl suggested in the pattern, but I think maybe vinyl would have been a lot easier to use. For example the white leather parts are approx 2mm thick leather and that, along with the thinner brown leather of the body of the shoes, plus I lined the brown leather with stabiliser, my machine wasn't over keen on so many layers to sew through.
However, they are finished and although not perfect, I'm really pleased with how they came out! Now to make some small laces for them :) And of course some turquoise and white striped socks! :)
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and that the week ahead is a great one for you!
