This kit has everything you need to make a pair of unique and long-lasting leather sandals. All the tools, materials, patterns and instructions.
This kit comes with several mix-n-match patterns to choose from which you can use as-is. Another great choice is to use the patterns as starting points to create your own original designs. The leather pieces included are large and you cut out your shapes so you can make them as specialized as you want! It usually takes about 5-6hrs to make this pair of sandals.

Round leather laces (about 62")
2 screw-back studs w instructions

3 pages of patterns to use as starting-points
Does not include: Paper (for making variations on patterns), Scissors (for cutting paper- any will do but nice fabric scissors are best), Tape (I like plain masking tape to secure the straps while adjusting fit), Hammer, Pencil or Pen!
Also does not include: An electric table-sander to smooth the edges of the finished sandals. This can be ok because A) it IS possible to get a smooth edge by just using the sharp knife blade-- if that dosn’t go as well as you’d like, then B) bring your sandals to a local cobbler and ask to have the edges cleaned up. This may cost $10-20 and will establish a nice bond between you and your cobbler. lastly, C) buy (or borrow) a table-top belt-sander for approx $100 and make sandals forever!
