While I was thinking about making Ginger skirts and my tendency to look out-of-proportion in a-lines, I was reminded of some wonderful Borrowers-inspired shoes I spotted.
They are sadly out of my price bracket, but they are so lovely, I thought you would like to see!
They are all from Fairysteps.
Their maker also has a lovely blog. She has been crochetting gorgeous cushion-covers recently :)
She makes bags and belts too.
I am kicking myself because she had a pair of shoes in my size reduced to half price because of a slight discolouration on one toe. I prevaricated for too long and someone else bought them – sob!
When I was a student in Leeds, I had a wonderful pair of red handmade leather ankle boots, from a shop called “Made To Last”. That shop is long gone, as are the boots: I wore them into the ground and a local shoe-repairer could not reverse the damage.
If I did not work in a fairly conservative environment, I would buy a pair of these and wear them every day.
I will have to save that treat for when I move to Hebden Bridge to live on a canal boat and keep cats.
I will knit and read and drink herbal tea all day.
I might even crochet some cushions :)
