pattern making. lets do it.

So, in between now and my last update I’ve accomplished the following:
1) eating mcdonald’s for probably the first or second time in…5 years?
2) losing my porkchops, yogurt, mustard, and juice to a bunch of rotten thieves. They also took the hostel’s fridge, washing machine, microwave, TV, etc.

Both, as I’m sure you’d agree, are very disagreeable.

But really, I’ve done a bit more than that.
In fact, I actually got to make a start on my first shoe. Well, designing it at least. Tomorrow I get to watch Erica, the upper-maker…make the uppers!
Until then, here’s a couple pictures of what I got so far. The process involved taping the last, drawing on the pattern/shoe, removing the tape and placing the pattern on paper, drawing in the lining, making adjustments, and a bunch of other stuff that I found really difficult because I can draw about as well as I can digest mcdonalds.

I’m pretty excited for the next step, which you’ll see tomorrow. or maybe the day after, depends how slow I am.
