Tessa from our team made these gorgeous silver ballet flats and now we’re all making ourselves a pair 😅

Watch the making process in the video below:

To make these silver ballet pumps, Tessa drew her own pattern on the last. We teach you how to make your own custom patterns in the Online Course if this is something you wish to learn. 

For ease, you can download our FREE Ballet Pump Pattern.

If you want to raise the topline of your Ballet Pump Pattern without drawing the pattern from scratch, you can follow THIS TUTORIAL on how to tweak our Ballet Pump Pattern.


Here's what you'll need to make your own Ballet Pumps:

1. Our FREE ballet pump pattern

2. A pair of Flat Shoemaking Lasts

3. Counter Stiffeners

4. Toe Puff Stiffeners

5. Texon Board for the insoles

6. Foam Sheets for added comfort for the insoles

7. Pre-made soles or resin soling for the soles

8. A Sewing Machine - we use the Janome HD9

Or you can purchase our Ultimate Shoemaking Starter Kit which comes with a pair of lasts, a Shoemaking Tool Kit and a Component Kit.
