Trace the patterns on the material with a pen.
The printed side of the patterns are for the left shoe, flip the pattern to make the right shoe.
It's good to write on each patterns, 'right' or 'left' to prevent the mistake.
Cut out the materials along the trace line and punch the holes.
After cutting all the patterns, temporarily fix the left and right parts with masking tape at the correct positions.
Pass the needle through both ends of the attached thread.
Insert a needle in position A and thread the threads until both threads are the same length.
Sew to point D with needle 1.
After sewing needle 2 to point D, stab needle 1 into position D on the sole.
The upper and sole will be connected with a 'saddle stitch'.'Saddle stitching' is a way to sew alternately with two needles as shown in the picture below.
On the side stitch part, sew up and back down with one needle.
For the final cleanup, sew both threads twice.
Put out the thread at the position shown in the picture. Cut the thread at about 5 mm.
Firewith a lighter the thread so that it cannot be unraveled.
Put the insole and put the string through to complete!
Our dream for the near future is to develop kids size LOPER's so kids can make their own shoes too.
Shoe manufacturing often is a unhealthy and harmful industry, for workers and environment.
Stop buying shoes and start making them :)
It's fun to do and such a great feeling to walk on your selfmade shoes!
