I Sewed My Own Shoes

I did it.

I finally broke down and purchased an Espadrille kit and made my own SHOES!

Hi -  I'm Megan Avery of Hipstitch Academy & I made a video breaking down the steps of actually sewing the espadrilles.

Here is what I used:

The kit is from A Happy Stitch


And here is where you can buy the actual kit on Etsy:


And it comes with EVERYTHING you need to make your own Espadrilles, including:

+ Canvas Les Fleurs Rifle Paper Co. fabric
