sew your own shoes using this crafty kit

By

Shoemaking isn’t your average home DIY project, but Melissa from The Happy Stitch has somehow made it a feasible task with her espadrille kits. From her home in New Jersey, Melissa gathers up pretty fabrics, shoe soles and other crafty bits and bobs and packs them all into a lovely craft kit, complete with detailed instructions that any newbie shoemaker can understand. As long as you’ve got a sewing machine and basic sewing supplies, you’re all set. To get your paws on a kit, make your way over to Melissa's Etsy store, where you’ll also find squee-inducing DIY espadrilles in baby sizes.
