Hurray for the first of my 2016 Q3 FAL (Finish-a-Long) finishes (see targets here)! And the one which has been in progress the shortest time, but it’s also the cutest.
I bet you all want a pair now, right? I purchased the espadrille kit at Creativ Festival in April, and the Echino linen-cotton from Fabric Spark worked out perfectly with a lovely soft Art Gallery print as the lining. The cotton yarn I had in my stash. But in case you’re interested, they are available on Amazon, and probably at the larger craft stores. I usually wear an 8-1/2, these are a size 9 sole and I just snugged up the length a bit. However let me warn you that it is physically tough to sew the soles, so I needed to take a lot of breaks because my hands got sore doing it (that is, not a two-hour craft as advertised).
Unfortunately, I’ve been having a lot of foot problems, which appears to be plantar fasciitis , so I’m putting off wearing these much at the moment since they have no arch support. No matter, it still counts for a finish! Linking up to the Finish-A-Long at the end of September, and today at The Quilt Journal for TGIFF.
