There is hope

So yesterday after being told that I couldn't make a shoe in vegetable tanned leather I decided I would find a way.

Then today I find, in the studio, a pair of continuous wrap sandals.  I asked the instructor what they were made out of.

"Veg tan"

Huh.  Couldn't you have just said that yesterday???

Then someone in class showed me abk shoes, based in NYC.  She is obsessed with the shoes, which are very simple, tooling hide shoes that aren't dyed on the inside.

Interesting, I think.  I could do that.  But with flowers.  And lace cut-outs.  The world is too beautiful to fill with brown shoes.
