With a combination of cement and nails, I attached each layer around the last—first the lining, then the pale green, then the darker green. I don’t have a good photo from above, but it ends up looking like the crinkled toes and heels on the bottom of a ballet slipper. It’s kind of sweet.
After trimming off excess leather, I cemented in a metal shank, which will help keep the curvature in the sole (between the heel and the ball of the foot) rigid.
NOW it’s looking like a shoe! Oh, god, I can’t wait to finish these! We’ve got one day of class to go, and all I have left is to put on the soles and the heels and finish the edges. C’mon, c’mon, get here, Saturday!
