I’ve been wanting to make sandals for some time. Finally I’ve found a book that shows me how to go about it. I love all the projects in the book! It really inspires me to start making my own sandals. There are lots of beautiful photos and detailed instructions. Definitely recommend this book!

This is a stunning book! It does a wonderful job explaining the techniques required to make your own sandals. The text is easy to read, but still highly detailed. The book is visually appealing and very informative, I would recommend it to anyone interested in sandal making!

I love the idea of making my own sandals. The projects in the book not only explain how to make sandals, but also introduce leather decorating techniques that make your sandals stand out. This is an excellent "how to" book with easy to follow instructions.

About the Author

introducing the author of this eBook

My story

I started making my own clothes and shoes out of a longing for a handmade wardrobe created by me. This has led me to explore, learn and practice many crafts and shoe making is one of them.

Clothing is our second skin. We can’t choose our first skin, we have to put up with the one we were given when we were born. But we can choose our second skin. It is to protect us but it also gives us the freedom to show what sort of people we are.

Personal motivation

We are all unique and wonderful, why wear boring and uniform clothes? Let's make this world a more interesting and beautiful place by creating our own second skin! I hope this sandal making book contributes to many more people hand crafting their own footwear and finding joy in the process.
