Simply Shoes - Let's Make Janes!

Hi Everyone! This week I invite you to follow along as I make Janes and Open-Toe Janes shoes. We've got many shoe patterns on Pixie Faire, and with a bit of practice you will be comfortable making a variety of styles! The shoe bodies may vary, but the sole construction is very similar. So, sit back, relax and let's learn to make shoes together...

Hi Cinnamon,

The link for the heat n bond to Amazon isn’t working. I takes me Darice foam sheets instead. Can you let me know when it’s fixed so I can be sure to buy the right product? Thank you,
