Ada Sandal - Kit
Ada Sandal - Kit
Make a pair of custom-fit sandals with the DIY kit!
The kits have been designed for beginners so no prior experience is required. The written & illustrative instructions have been broken down into many small steps, making the process feeling highly manageable! And to further support the maker, all kits come with access to video lessons demonstrating many of the steps.
Due to the customisable nature of sandal making, the kits can accommodate a vast range of feet sizes and shapes!
If you love the idea of learning a new fun skill, and a super practical one at that, as well as having shoes fit specifically to your feet, then the kit is for you!
