Choose The Odd-Bits Kits Option...

Turn your kit into an Odd Bits Kit! This option is comprised of the same items as all other kits (based on chosen style), but instead the leather component comes as a carefully selected bundle of remnant leather rather than one larger piece. Just enter the code: ODD-BITS during checkout to participate and receive $50 off your order as a thank you! 

* If you would rather the kit it in it's original form (one large piece of leather), do not use the above the code. 


About this style:

The Freya Sandal is one of the easiest styles to make, although it can take a tiny bit longer in the preparation stage due to attaching so many buckles. The style is full of repetition allowing the maker to get into good work flow. When it comes to forming the shape of the sandal over the foot, this is one of the easiest styles due to how simple it is to place and fit the straps.

** Please purchase The Specialty Tools Kit to make The Freya Sandal.

Items you will need to source:

  • Metal ruler 
  • Gas lighter (to melt the wax thread)

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.
