It’s time for another sparkling kit in the Artist Series. Truthfully, sending off espadrille-making supplies to an artist is always a delight. I send this package out into the world and wait for the magic to return. It’s a joy every time and this July edition is no different. This time the inimitable Treasure from Nikki and Mallory has made leather sandals and they are SO gorgeous. Full kits are available here or you can grab the PDF only here.
Aren’t these so swoon-worthy? I’m in love. Most impressively of all, Treasure has managed to created these leather espadrille sandals with a very straightforward construction process. She makes creating leather sandals accessible! I don’t even know how that is possible.
Her simple but elegant design is made manageable with her full, step-by-step video where she walks through every aspect as if making your own gorgeous leather sandals is no big deal. Her calm, confident manner is seriously contagious and she will infuse you with all good feelings.
Kits are available in my Etsy Shop and come with the following items:
+ Espadrille Shoe Soles in your preferred size (measure your foot against the size chart to get the correct size)
+ Embossed Leather in either Honey or Chocolate Brown (your choice)

(be sure to downloadthe video in order to view it completely)
I have also made the PDF available for immediate download for any folks who already have espadrille and leather-making supplies.
Kits are only available until August 6th (and, honestly, only a few are available so they could sell out sooner!). Don’t miss out on this great summer shoe. Bring that handmade wardrobe to the next level! Make yourself some Leather Sandals from Nikki and Mallory.
UPDATE: These kits sold out so quickly, we decided to do a second run! Included in this re-stock is a new color, Mediterranean. Be sure to grab a kit quickly!

“After years of working in TV/Film, I knew there had to be more to life then cubicles & bosses. Life’s challenges pushed me to create and become innovative so, I taught myself the very thing I loved, handbags! When one bag turned into multiple – with no money or experience, I took a leap of faith and started my own leather goods business, Nikki&Mallory.
The rest is history!”
