a kit to make your own sandals
If you spent 2020 embroidering everything in sight (and therefore need a new stitch-based challenge), look no further. The Shoe Camaraderie is an Aussie shop selling swish sandal-making kits that you can customise to your liking. Making your own shoes might sound a little crazy, but shop owner, and shoemaker, Lisa Turnbull is dead serious when she says her kits are suitable for crafters with no prior experience. All the necessary supplies are packed into a box and sent over to you, while instructions are broken down into small, manageable steps. How awesome would it be to get around in sandals you stitched yourself? (Answer: incredibly awesome.) If that sounds like your thing, head here to browse the whole range.
