Announcement    Make your own shoes! Everything you need to make a pair of espadrille shoes is available in these beautifully curated packages. All you need is a sewing machine and a few hours with a kit and you can tromp through the streets in handmade shoes. Amazing! Who knew it was so easy to become a shoe-maker?

Pick up one of the Starter Kits in fabric of your choice to have everything delivered to your door. Choose from the selection of lush fabrics of choose an I GOT IT kit if you already have a healthy stash! Note: shoes require canvas or cotton-linen fabric (~1/3 yard) and the same amount of a cotton lining fabric.

How it works:
1. Choose a Starter Kit (with fabric) or an I Got It kit (without fabric)
2. If you pick a Starter Kit, decide on your fabric option. Just choose what grabs you...they all make beautiful shoes. Leave me a note if you want to switch out the lining fabric (options are Twig, Ocean or Midnight)
3. Pick the size of shoe sole. Please view the size chart in the listing for assistance picking the correct size. It's best to measure your foot from heel to toe (stand on a ruler!) and compare those measurements to the size chart. My instruction booklet also comes with helpful tips for getting a good fit.
4. Prepare to dazzle yourself!

If you have already made a pair of shoes and would like to make a second pair but don't need ALL the accessories, pick up a RENEWAL KIT and I will send just what you need.

Please feel free to convo me with any additional questions. I can't wait to get your walking around in your handmade shoes.

Note: Making espadrilles DOES require a sewing machine and standard sewing supplies. All of the other specialty supplies arrive in your beautiful kit. These listings are for the sale of espadrille shoe-making kits NOT already constructed shoes.

++++ International customers, please note, buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
I highly recommend Priority shipping to ensure a door to door tracking service. I recognize it can be an added expense. Many of my international customers are combining orders with friends in order to split the shipping cost. Please reach out with any questions.

Thank you.

Yes! You can make your own shoes! The Espadrilles Kits are a shoemaking DIY experience! They come with everything you need in a gift-worthy package.

Your feet are made for walking. You might as well tromp around in espadrilles you made with your own two hands! Espadrille shoes have been worn by artists and influencers for decades. Join the ranks of Picasso, Salvador Dali and Lauren Bacall with your own handmade pair. Just choose between the popular floral, striped, abstract or classic fabric choices that I lovingly chose because of how well they will work as espadrille fabrics. If you already have your own fabric you can grab one of the I GOT IT kits and I send you everything else you need. These kits also make a great gift for a crafty woman in your life or as a bachelorette activity (with champers ;) )
