I still need to make the pattern for the lining, and cut the lining, obviously, as well as making the patterns for the counter and the heels.
The jagged edge on the black pieces (which I think is called gimping) is typically done with a machine, as part of the cutting process. You just run the cutting needle (like a sewing machine) along the cut line, and it gives you a nice, even, zig-zag edge. I don't have one of those machines, so I cut all the little teeth by hand, with a pair of scissors.
The next step here is to get out the hole punches, and do the decorative holes along the edges, and also, to skive the edges of the light blue leather.
