I am So excited to share with you my latest project-- the Ruby Shoes. Named, of course, for the lovely ruby coloring.
I was inspired to make these from two sources:
When I saw the Make it and Love it Sandals I immediately thought, "Oh, I wish I could make my girl shoes-- but I don't have any leather." Literally the next day it occurred to me that I do indeed have some pleather-- or some strange leather wanna-be which I purchased a long time ago sitting in my supply.
Then I thought, "Hmm, I don't really want to make sandals, since summer's almost over. But I'd love to try making my daughter some church shoes-- mary jane-style."
And thus my journey into becoming a cobbler began.

1. Print out Ruby Shoes Pattern
2. 1/4 yard leather (pleather?) fabric
3. 1/4 yard felt
4. Regular sewing machine and materials
Step One: Place pattern on leather and cut out each piece.
The pattern explains how many should be cut out.
Please note, when doing the soles of the feet, flip the pattern over to do the left foot pattern.
Step Two: Line up the soles.
We'll start here.
Enjoy those lovely new Ruby Shoes!
She loves them!
