Finished these last night, sanding the soles whilst very hot and sweaty.
On second thoughts I would make them again, they are really cute and I can't help but smile when I look at them! Leo likes them but didn't wear them today, he said they are too good to wear to kinder and that he'll wear them tomorrow. It'll probably be raining and time for serious boots. Alas, the whims of a child.
This weather is my least favourite to make shoes in, too many little bits of leather dust settling in my elbow creases, the sanding machine throws out a bit of detritus too, so after finishing these I looked a bit like a miner with black sooty dust on my face.
All in a day's work. What shits you about your job in this weather?
