Espadrilles! I made my own shoes

Shoe2

I made my own Espadrille shoes in a class at the Butcher's Sew Shop. We brought our own fabric then cut and sewed the two fabrics (outside and lining) into a top and sides.

The fabric was then fitted to the traditional rubber and jute soles (from Diegos), pinned, and blanket-stitched using cotton twine.

The outside fabric is a linen/cotton blend (Whisp in Peacock from Erin Dollar's Balboa collection). The lining is a Kaffe Fassett shot cotton (Narrow Spice Woven Stripes).
