My first pair of shoes
by Natasha Estrada Follow

This was my first attempt at making shoes made the traditional way with a last. I made several mistakes mainly to do with using the wrong materials and not putting things I needed to put in like stiffeners at the heel but they are ultra comfy and to this days I still wear them. They are the start of my shoe making journey and now a year later I have actually acheived my original goal which was to make ballet flats instead of buying them.
