Cleopatra's Sandals

I really recommend this pair of sandals. They were easy to make. I used a fast-tack glue, and had great success. I didn't have thin leather on hand, and used a faux suede upper with a leather sole. Worked great. Looks like a well-loved, comfortable pair of sandals. Great fit. Great instructions, especially for embellishing them. You'll use these embellishing methods for your other projects, too.
