What are you most proud of? I am still tweaking my designs after 170 or so pairs. When I sell shoes I custom fit the pattern to a gazillion measurements. You can't buy shoes that fit so well. :) And if they don't fit - I alter them. That's the beauty of fabric shoes... I sell my shoes on etsy- this is just one pair of about 50 listings up on www.uku2.etsy.com.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are a few patterns for shoes available out there but mostly they are for shoes that don't distinguish between right and left. Be prepared to tweak a pattern like that a great deal to get the look you want. Oh, and leave 5/8" of ease lengthwise. I learned that one the hard way. ;) I am working on getting patterns ready for sale - feel free to contact me if you might be interested? uku.clothing@gmail.com
