Today, I have a special treat for you and I know that many of you been asking me to do this one for a long time so here it is , my new tutorial for "Flat Women Peep Toe Shoes". This is a complete tutorial from drawing on the last to complete pair of shoes. You will find the full and exclusive tutorial below but first I have few announcements that I'm sure you'll be interest in .

 As you can see I changed the look and the name of my blog and now it is filled with more useful information about creation and shoe design and much more will be added. Every week I get at least one letter from you, my dear subscribers, with the question of where to buy shoe lasts, heels, knifes etc.  Understanding this problem, because most stores only sell in large quantities for large companies or individual designers, I decided to create a list of all possible online shops and even make some connections exclusively for my readers to suppliers who will sell to individuals in a small quantities(no minimum order limits) where you can buy all the necessary tools to work with shoes, lasts and heels. I'm working on it right now, it takes time, but over the next week I hope to upload it to the blog, so you can use it to create your shoes.

From now I'll also upload exclusively only on my blog, new post and tutorials based on your requests. Here are just some of my future tutorials, guides and  videos that I'm preparing for you: platform shoes, clogs, ballerina with accessories, sandals, boots, wedding shoes, and more. Some of them already in a making, but what can I do, there is not enough hours in a day. Specially for my Email list subscribers I will send additional tips on design and creation of shoes, and this is another reason why you should subscribe to my Email list. I already released several eBooks- Pumps shoes with heels, Loafer, T-Strap Sandal, and today, finally, I finished another guide, " How to make Derby shoes for Women" I worked on it for almost 2 months and it includes a full video step by step course of making a women derby shoes  from drawing on the last to cutting, sewing and assembling, accompanied with detailed explanations, pictures and drawings.

One more thing , for a long time I wanted to open a Shoemaking&Creative group on Google plus, and finally, today, I did. Since I myself  inspired in creation of my own shoes by any manifestation of human talent, ranging from music, architecture, photography and film, then I want it to be a group that is not only for shoemakers, but for all the creative people who want to share their projects. I want all of us together to create a free creative platform that will inspire and enhance our creativity. I welcome everyone to join and share.

Making this Flat Women Peep Toe Shoes tutorial, I simplified the creation of shoes, suited to anyone, without any proper education, and without special equipment to be able to make a pair of shoes or at least until you will learn how to use those tools. Pay attention to the creation of the sole. I'm doing them as if it were made for you at the sole factory, using only manual drill, which can be purchased at any electronics store.

I simplified my  tutorials so that everyone can make any pair of shoes.

Materials that I used: for upper- leather(any), for lining- leather(soft-calf, pig, goat);vegetable tanned leather 5mm for sole, materials for mid-sole you can see in this tutorial, glue is cement leather glue, topline tape 4mm for reinforcement of the seam on the upper.
