Happy Feet Sneakers Class

Make your own sneakers with Joan of Bucklebee Tools!

Spend the day making a pair of real sneakers, with quilted uppers and rubber soles. You’ve been saving a bit of that favorite fabric for a special project, and Happy Feet! sneakers are absolutely special. You’ll quilt your chosen fabrics, cut out your component parts, bind raw edges, set eyelets, and then attach your uppers to your soles. It’s a straightforward project suitable for advanced beginners and intermediate sewists. Your kit fee covers everything but your fabric & shoelaces, and includes a copy of Joan’s paperback book: Happy Feet! A Guide to Making Quilted Sneakers.

We will reach out to you regarding your sole order.
