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
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!
On Shoes of Prey you can select the style, material and colour of your shoes. Also contains good video’s on how the shoes are made. Amazing if you like that sort of thing:)
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)
Hand made shoes, a set on Flickr.
I’m testing the pattern using a pair of jeans.
