most women love shoes. we can never seem to have enough pairs. we always want more. but this time, instead of hitting the stores for new shoes or slippers, why not use those crafty talents of yours and whip up a pair custom made for your feet from a pattern from shoeology? pick the fabric you want, in the perfect color for that new fave outfit or refashion a jacket or pants into some must have comfy shoes!
what about those new skinny jeans that you've been hunting for a new pair of flats to wear with? pick up some faux leather or light weight leather from your local craft shop or online and put a soft sole on some stylish patterns from the new etsy shop "shoeology" and get walking. perfect for dry days, where you want to curl up at your favorite coffee shop with a great friend for some girl chat.
does it sound a bit daunting to add a leather sole? well, because i'm a newbie sewer i asked cheri about this and she gave us a great tip. make sure to use a leather sewing needle when sewing the sole on and also that 2.5oz or less would make a great lightweight leather.
cheri's got 3 new patterns in the shop to suit any style. mary jane's, vintage upcycled, & sunday morning slippers. those sunday morning slippers would be the perfect addition to any weekend lounging or even perfect for pre or post yoga. so comfy! you know when you go shopping and you find something you love and it's a great deal? well that's what's shoeology got. i don't know about you but when i find a top that fits great that's easy to wear i take my mom's advice and scoop up a few colors (if budget allows of course) cause i know i'm gonna wear the heck out of it. right now at shoeology you can get all 3 of these fun patterns for only $15! pretty good deal if you ask me.
