Shoes of comfort

  Attempting comfortable soft shoes to stand in 10 hrs Soft leather from the leather bin at  vinyl with cork side for bottom of inside shoes and espridrilles bottom from Etsy with Grocery or Pharmacy that sells Dr Scholls inserts for the inside. 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!?) Don't forget using your leftovers.... T

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 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
