First pair of shoes for Miss Piggy

I have been making shoes for Miss Piggy for the whole weekend, but some of them need time for the paint or glue to dry, so this simple pair was the first one I could finish.

Usually I don't glue the back seam this way, but the sealer made the fabric really stiff and this was the only way to apply enough pressure to the seam.

The sole is made of one layer of cardboard and the leather inner sole. When the upper is glued in place, the sole will hold its shape without any additional strengthening.

The heel is made of polymer clay and the outer sole is made of leather. Red decorative trim is glued in place on the edge and on the seam between leather sole and polymer clay heel.
