Hello and welcome!

I am so excited to be launching this new business, and even happier that you're here reading this first journal entry! 

As you may have seen in the About section of this site, my name is Peta Louise and I am a shoemaker and milliner from Adelaide, Australia. I also love to sew and have been following many sewing blogs for the past few years. In fact, looking up the latest creations of so many wonderfully talented sewing bloggers is pretty much the first thing I do each morning! I am really happy to now be able to contribute to this community by sharing what I've been lucky enough to learn about making shoes, hats and other accessories, so that hopefully you too can enjoy the fun and satisfaction of wearing and using shoes and accessories that you have made yourself.

I'll be publishing my first pattern very soon and will send an email to everyone who has subscribed to be notified about the pattern's launch so that you can be among the first to try it out. If you haven't signed up for notifications yet, you can do so on the sidebar to the right of this journal entry.  

I hope you're looking forward to making your first pair of shoes!!
