My shoes were ready to a walk. I made the soles from cork and foamed plastic sheets, which I glued with contact cement and sew with the sewing machine. It became tough enough for walking outside, and flexible enough to sew and turn over. I embroidered the black characters, cause I feel that something is missing. I use the shadow of the cloth dogs in a scaled down and 2d that I draw and cut out from the black cotton fabric.
