To view a collection of my Avishoes baby shoes, and other shoes and boots, just click on the vikings. There are also Avishoes on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/avilajanssen/sets/72157627209925305/

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please note I made these baby shoes quite a while ago, and only a limited number are still for sale on Folksy: http://folksy.com/search?t=items&q=avishoes&commit=Search

Me and Eva Shackel

Standard

Eva (left) runs Workshop Skills- workshops and is helping me with devising the structure of my Make Your Own Canvas Shoes Workshop. You can find her website here: http://workshopconsultant.co.uk/category/blog/. We are discussing materials for the shoes here, and how people coming on the workshop will measure their own feet, make a pattern and sew their own shoes. I’m especially fond of the deckchair canvas; it’s colours are bright and just says summer to me:-) The fabric also comes with complementary sweets!

The Amazing Singer 317

Standard

As the lady I bought it from called it. It’s from 1966 and can handle thick fabrics, and leather. Like an industrial machine, but then portable.   Hmmm, just look at its creamy retro-ness. Aluminium on the outside and metal on the inside; indestructable. (Hopefully)
