New Blog, New Shoes

I have wide feet.  My shoe size is 6WW, which most shoe manufacturers don't bother with, especially for the really fun shoes.  So for years now, I've wanted to learn how to make my own.

Earlier this month, I spent a week in Ashland, Oregon, learning to make women's high heeled fashion pumps from Bill Shanor at Bonney and Wills Shoe School.  It was an azmazing experience, and at the end of it, I had made these shoes:


I can't wait to make the next pair of shoes.  And the pair after that. 

So I'm starting a new blog, all about the shoe-making process.  I might sometimes post other things I make here - but this blog is all for the things I make.  Welcome!
