About

The Carmen Sandal is a great starting kit as you will cover a range of tasks that can be applied across all styles!

** Note: this is the instructional component of the style only. If you would like to have the physical materials too, you can select the individual items from the supply store. Alternatively, you can choose The Carmen Sandal Kit which includes both physical materials and the online course.

    Sizing

    You do not need to choose a size for this product. The patterns and instructions accommodate any size.

    Items you will need to source
    • Heavy duty scissors for cutting curved lines through the leather
    • Measuring tape
    • Paper or light cardboard
    • Gas lighter (to melt the wax thread)
    • Shears or pliers for cutting through soling material & heels
    Important Exclusion

    The final step of sandal making is to smooth the edges of your soles. This can be done using a sanding belt or a metal file. You can either purchase both items from your local tool store, or you can take your formed sandals to a shoe repairer to do the final sanding/smoothing. This should be an inexpensive option.

    Colours

    Ever changing limited edition colours are available for the kits! Please note that any one colour is extremely limited in supply so may only be available for a short time, and as a once off.
