Lebrechaun (socks and shoes) ** Contains incidental artistic nudity!
The heel is a simple arc (left one) which has the top edge turned and glued down to make a point which will lay on the tendon of the heel (right one). *The suede side of leather can be held together with Fabric-tac. If you join the finished sides of leather together, you will need another type of glue. I use super glue to attach to the polished side of a hide.
The heel is glued and stretched in place so the excess on the bottom wraps around to the sole of the foot.
The shoes will be stitched, dirtied, and distressed later in the dressing process.
Thanks for viewing, have a great day!
