tutorial (from Tao of Craft) that I used was pretty good, but a little confusing. On step five, you are supposed to have the velcro side of the strip facing up, but the photo doesn't show that. Luckily, I realized that it wouldn't work before it was too hard to fix. Also, none of the photos show the interfacing or the suede bottom pieces, which I am guessing she didn't use at first.
these from Craft Snob, except I used flannel instead of felt.
A few things I will do differently next time:
- Use lighter-weight leather for the soles. I had some scraps from another project that worked, but weren't ideal.
- Use lighter-weight interfacing. I used some leftover interfacing from when I made my fabric boxes, but since these are relatively small it ended up pretty bulky.
- Use more pins! I didn't want to ruin the leather soles, so I didn't put any pins in the bottom, but things were sliding around like crazy, especially with all the curved edges.
