Shoes of comfort

Image
  Attempting comfortable soft shoes to stand in 10 hrs Bottoms Cork will face down, this a soft vinyl-caramel colored with cork back Foam insert cut to size Dr Scholls Arch Support soft insert cushioning Bought two soft skins- to make matching clutch and or bag of same.  Thinking style will be a full shoe cover with cross over straps that are sewn in with elastic back to slide shoe on. I ordered some shoe glue.  I have a palm thimble and was going to sew it, but I think I would like to glue the bottom on and maybe hand sew it with a blanket stitch for design element only.  This leather is so soft and it feels so good on my foot.  I am going to use some elastic in the back and velcro for the strap wrapping.  (I am still thinking!?)

Purse--Handbag--Clutch--Change Purse

  No Pattern, Using a piece of leftover copper from the previous Color Block Jacket-That became the size Then Folded and squared like the Tote bag instructions in SewAlongwithkitty.com Cut the outside piece and cut the inside piece. Took the inside piece and cut it about a sixth of the way down one side and put a zipper in to form a pocket  I used an invisible zipper because that was what I had. Folded the outside and then took a piece of fabric and put the lining on the otherside of it to form the rectangle for the  outside pocket - sew around the outside of the pocket onto the outside piece, leaving an opening so there is a pen pocket at the bottom and then sew across above it.   I used the pleather lining to sew tabs on each side with D rings so I could add a chain handle and also I like to link my keyring on one side of my purse so I don't lose my keys. Added a change purse to the inside by folding the pleather lining piece into a narrow strip and sewing an end into the change

  We are going to make a simpler jacket using this pattern step by step so you can easily make one, too The first time was improvised on this pattern, using leftover fur.  Example below We are going to follow the pattern by using the pattern pieces exactly and we are going to put side pockets instead of the front pockets. The pockets can be turned inside out when you reverse the coat for use on the other side.  This will be explained. Example of how I used the pattern previously, But this time we will follow the pattern more exactly and it will be Black and Copper-reversible. This is the second time I am using this pattern.   The pieces are cut out.  The first time I used it was when I took some leftover fur and guided the use of the pieces in a similar way to the picture on the pattern. Side 2 This was Jacket 2 and I put right sides together and made a seam from the bottom edge a little off center and left an opening just big enough after sewing around to flip the jacket inside and th
