Oh Cobblers

I never signed up for cobbling, and I don't think I'd pass the entrance exam, but after the pair of books I made for myself

I thought I'd keep going.

I have made a pair for God Daughter's Christmas present,

And then a teacher at school asked for a pair too

Making them involved a bit of Heath Robinson thinking:  The only clear space to set up the Bernina was a bit high for using the foot pedal.  And the machine then had to go on a stool to give enough room to move the boot around, So I stood at the desk to make them.
I think they worked OK


  1. Fab boots well done. I hope the lucky owners realise they have bespoke boots!

  2. Hi Benta! They are so wonderful and unique boots! How great your sewing machine can sew so thick materials.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! x Teje

  3. Very ingenious engineering Benta - both on how to sew the boots and on the final result!

  4. You have a real cottage industry going there Benta! They look magnificent.

  5. Ah, I take it it doesn't have a free arm then! Very well overcome anyway!

  6. Well done! I'm sure they will be very well received.
