LEATHER SOLES & HEELS SANDAL MAKING KIT - NATURAL

220.00

A sandal-making-kit for you to make sandals on your own! This kit is *slightly more advanced* than the rubber soled kit, requiring a few extra steps. You also might want to purchase a “shoe-anvil”, (like this) . It isn’t absolutely necessary, but it is encouraged.

I've made sure it has everything you need to make a pair of leather sandals: tools, materials, and instructions. Some of these things can be tricky to source or to buy in small quantities so its been a dream of mine to assemble a kit for the sandal-curious to use!

Includes:

  • Heavy 8/9oz. top-soling leather (enough for women's sizes 5-12)

  • 4/5oz. weight leather for upper straps (approx 13" x 20")

  • Heavy 8/9oz. Soling leather (enough for up to women’s size 12)

  • Stacked leather heels 5/8th” height

  • Round leather laces (about 62")

  • 2 "Sam Brown" screw-back studs w instructions

  • Leather hole punch

  • Scratch Awl

  • Olfa brand utility knife w blade (refillable)

  • Shoe glue & brush

  • 16-page Instruction booklet by me

  • free link to 1-hr instructional Skillshare video by me

  • 3 pages of patterns to use as starting-points

  • Additional instructions on using leather soles + heels

  • Additional instructions on making “midsoles”

  • 8 nails for heels + 22 brass clinching nails

  • Leather for making midsoles

  • Black Fine-Point Sharpie

Does not include: Paper (for making variations on patterns), Scissors (for cutting paper- any will do but nice fabric scissors are best), Tape (i like plain masking tape to secure the straps while adjusting fit), Hammer.

Also does not include: An electric table-sander to smooth the edges of the finished sandals. This can be ok because you can either:

A) Bring your sandals to a local cobbler and ask to have the edges cleaned up. this may cost $10-20 and will establish a nice bond between you and your cobbler.

B) Buy a belt-sander for approx $100 and make sandals forever! Borrowing or using a friends is always a good idea too. Many woodworkers have them. You’re looking for a “electric table-top belt sander” (80 or 100 grit sandpaper) with the sanding belt in the horizontal position.

++ also available in dark brown/black ++

++a pop up window will ask you for the approximate size shoe you'll be making so i can make sure theres enough material for you++
