Miniature Sport Shoe

DISCLAIMERNo Copyright Infringement Intended

A new post almost after a year. It ain't easy managing my time as a student. Now that I have officially graduated, I perceive that I will be even busier once I start to work (which is very soon). 

This is my first (possibly last) attempt in sewing a shoe and these are my 'non-professional', unplanned, random steps that I have used to put it into one piece. Improvisation desperately needed, but I doubt I will make another shoe ;) 

Tutorial 
(For those who prefer pictures in motion, here is the link to youtube. https://youtu.be/qpCS9tKGxos)

1. Get your shoe size right. Which side do you want? Left or right? :D 

2. I believe details are the key to a successful miniature. I am just being lazy, so I went for a simple sort of shoe tread.

3. Sew a strip along the base to give it some thickness. After all, it's a sport shoe, not a slipper.


4. If I did not examine my shoe wrongly, it has two different parts. So, here's to the first front part. 

5. Every shoe has a name/brand/label, doesn't it?

6. My source of inspiration is my Nike shoe, but this word may be too small to be readable. Tips: Just because it's small, it does not mean you have to skip this step! Again, give as much attention to details as possible~

7. Notice the difference? I have added a red backing to it.

8. Now, here comes the second back part of the shoes. To this, I sew a red internal layer as well.

9. So far so good. This is how it would look like once you sew both parts together.

10. I glued a piece of red insole into the shoe, just like how normal shoe would be (and of course to cover some of my thread track :D).

11. Do not underestimate this part of the tutorial. Getting the shoe lace into my hand-made holes took me ages. Trust me, embroidery thread is not the best option, but I have nothing else with me. There's one that I would like to use. However, I do not know what it's called and I do not have any with me.

12. Move on to details. Added some red ridges to this little shoe. I have only an afternoon to make this, but if you have time, definitely should go for sewing, rather than glue-ing.

13. You need to maintain the shape of the shoe, don't you?

14. Final touch. Adding the little 'tick' to the shoe.

15. Front view. 

16. Side view.

17. Top view. 

18. Bottom view.


Source(s) of inspiration:
Idea inspiration: My friend who jogs in the winter.
Design inspiration: My Nike shoe.
Colour inspiration: UK flag (and the limited choices of colour that I have xD)

That's all for now. Hope this inspires you one way or the other.

Lots O Huggin Bear

It's not easy being a full-time student. Now that term has started, there will certainly be less uploads, but one thing for sure, my passion for arts would not die down.

Drumroll please...

As promised, I introduce you to Lots O. One of my favourite bears (next to my green bear - Sam)!

Finding Dory

Hello Peeps! It has been a while (literally) not updating this blog. No, I won't abandon it of course. It costs me my sweat and tears xD.

I love Pixar movies especially the messages from inside the story. Here's one dedicated to baby Dory.

First time trying out felt sculpting and of course more to come!

Toy Story Green Alien

I do not know what makes me like them.
It's because...
They are green?
They have green eyes?
They are chubby?
These aren't important. I like them and that's it! :)

'You have saves our lives. We are eternally grateful'

Doodle first sew later!

 Ah my finishing products! 

What do you think?!
