I have been trying to find the easiest way to make slip-on, adjustable sandals. Using vegetable tanned leather and some mystery soles I was given by my amigo Pete at Rocketbuster Boots, the sole person, I believe I have made my favorite sandals yet! 

tooled with little rams...

wrapped the straps with cotton embroidery floss

and they fit perfect

While I love love love my non-electric hand crank 100 year old machine, I wanted to take advantage of the industrial sewing machine available in the studios at Origin Design Labs in Eureka.

But the time in half of what it usually takes me to make a pair of sandals, but I used electricity...for about 8 minuets.
