Q&A with bitterpurl

gamma Bear asked:
Love these shoes, are they hard to make? Thanks for posting the pattern site.
bitterpurl answered:
they're a little tricky/fiddly. but once you make one you figure out the pattern and they get easier to make ; )
martha2408 asked:
I actually bought this pattern long time ago, but I'm a bit intimidated by the instructions so I haven't made any. I think the instruction should be a little more specific.
bitterpurl answered:
I know what you mean! the patterns aren't very clear so I ended up with a couple of duds. once I tried it out and stopped reading the pattern it all started to come out together. I'm tempted to do a tutorial to help others, but I'm not sure how to do it without breaking copyright
