Yesterday I attended one of my darling friend Zoe’s shoe workshops.
She is founder of fabulous brand ‘Love From Hetty & Dave‘, one of my favourite shops a few doors down from ours in Pokesdown.
Sunday was all about learning to customise a pair of ordinary, boring shoes into a cheeky animal leather delight to adorn your toes – Hetty & Dave style.
Having absolutely zero sewing skills I was a little anxious that I would be miles behind the rest of the lovely ladies that attended, but Zoe’s a great teacher and I soon got to grips with threading needles, cutting up templates and stitching away to revamp some old black suede Primark high heels.
The plan? To add a cheeky cat ….
With plenty of tea and a rather impressive homemade cake (Zoe is quite the baker) and the cats started to take shape…. ta daaaa!
Here’s all the shoes made on the day, including a lovely journalist from Mollie Makes magazine who was reporting on the workshop
These are my finished cat heels. I love them!
It’s also a nice feeling to look down and know you hand stitched your own shoes! I have such admiration for Zoe and how skilled she is!
