My Shoemaking Heroine!

If you look down the side column of my blog, you will see that I follow some really talented costumers. For this post, I want to draw your attention to Diary of a Mantua Maker. Her work is amazing!!!

Today she has posted a pair of steam punk boots that she has made. I know, that is a totally different time period but it doesn't diminish the greatness of her accomplishments. The making of shoes, by hand, and for any period in history (or fantasy), is a skill and a craft to be appreciated. I want to take this opportunity to give her a public applause.

Here is a link to her shoe work, for your enjoyment:
