For the past year or so I have been OBSESSED with the thought of making my own shoes. I have tons and tons of leather scraps and really want to use them to make a little pair of mocs or boots.
So I ordered this pattern and set to work.
FAIL!! This thing is so hideous that I didn't even bother to make its mate.
Then the other day I stumbled across one of these kits at the thrift shop for $3.
I am having a hard time making the image of what I would like to make in my head match up with the reality of what my hands create. Do you ever have this problem?
These are more of what I was going for.
It will probably take a few more attempts, but I am confident that I will be able to come up with something I like. How about you? Are there any projects or skills you keep attempting but cant seem to get just right?
