Soft Sole Slippers • January 25

, ,

Saturday, January 25, 9 am – 5 pm

Donna Mienk

Keep your feet warm this winter, and treat yourself to a new pair of custom slippers – hand stitched by you! Learn to measure your feet for a perfect fit, make a pattern for two piece slippers, and hand-sew the soft deerskin with a leather needle. Then, embellish your slippers with beads, buttons, shells, or a simple, unique design. Please note: students will be doing the whip stitch, so some hand strength is needed. Materials fee $35, payable to the instructor.
