I have to admit I fell absolutely in love with these shoes the second I stitched the crochet piece on to the sole. These are just lovely handmade shoes any way you look at it. I love the texture, the toes peeping through, the delicate tie-on strap, and the clean simple look of them. You're going to love them, too. AND, just think of it, you made a pair of shoes! Use a beautiful fingering weight linen and shell stitch to make these beautiful shoes. They are secure and comfortable.
