Shoemaking Patterns and Book

Greetings,

I am no longer selling products offered on this site, and all paypal buttons have been deactivated. If you are interested in purchasing any of my new shoemaking books or dvds, they are available at: www.SimpleShoemaking.etsy.com.

My new books are:

Slow Shoes: How to Hand-make Healthy, Earth-Friendly Shoes for Women - $45.00 plus $5.00 shipping

Slow Shoes for Children: How to Hand-make Healthy, Earth-Friendly Shoes in Children's Sizes - $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping

Slow Sandals: How to Hand-make Earth-Friendly Sandals (all sandals are healthy, I think!) - $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

I will soon have How to Hand-make Moccasins and Slow Shoes for Men available.

I am still selling my book, Crafting Handmade Shoes - $25 plus $5.00 shipping.

I currently have two dvds for sale:

How to Make a Derby Boot for a Child (it's made the same way as a shoe for an adult, so this is a basic stitch-down shoemaking dvd) - $25.00, shipping included

How to Hand-make Sandals - $25.00, shipping included

Please follow me on www.simpleshoemaking.wordpress.com where I offer shoemaking information as well as videos showing different styles of footwear you can make by following directions and patterns in my books, and some shoemaking processes.

If you are interested in purchasing Soles with an Edge!, I have cut back on the time I am devoting to making them, so please email or call me to find out if I will be able to make a pair for you.

happy shoemaking, Sharon

 

I am leaving photos of the footwear that can be made by using the patterns in the books on this page, along with information on Crafting Handmade Shoes which remains available for purchase. 




The two shoemaking books I have written are out of print. However, I offer reprints of Crafting Handmade Shoes in black and white for $30 including shipping.
