I just finished my first pair of the no-sew gladiators & found it to be rather easy. Since they are being used for a special project, I decided to forgo the 'bling' embellishments & just cut extra of the leather for the trim. Found a hole punch that creates a 1/4 or 1/8 hole (sorry it's not currently in front of me) & that worked perfectly for making the lace holes. I will advise taking your time in cutting of chosen material & placement of holes, as it is extremely easy to muck up if rushed.
