Tutorial 1 – Canvass shoe

There has been question about where my tutorials has gone, and I am sorry I haven’t really thought much about them untill now.
This tutorials is how I make these things, but not nesesery my own idea. Some I have fount in the internet, but made my own way to make. So here is the deal.
This is how I make it my way. And if that is of any help to others, feel free to use them.
And I will say thanks for coming by.
Canvass baby shoes
This I found in the CakeCentral, and you will also find the templates there, or just send me an email and I will send you mine.
babysko1a
Start up with your templates, a cutter of some kind, modelling knife, rolling pin and gumpaste/flowerpaste of two colours.
babysko1b
Roll out around 3 – 5 mm paste of one colour, and cut out the sole of the shoe.
babysko1c
When you want two shoes, remember to turn over the template so you get one right and one left shoe.
babysko1d
Make two banana shaped toe supporters and glue them on with gumglue.
babysko1e
Now cut out the bell shaped template for the front of the shoe.
babysko1f
Remember one for each shoe.
babysko1g
Add glue the bottom of the bell.
babysko1h
And glue it on the front of the shoe. Use some kitchen paper og sponge behind to support it up.
babysko1i
I like the shoes to be round and kind of sweet, so I use the modellingknife to press the paste close to the sole.
babysko1j
Here you see how the paper supports the flip to stand up.
babysko1k
The templates had two parts for the backside of the shoe, but I cut it as one. In that way I do not get any extension in the backside.
Any stitch marking you wish on your shoe has to be made now.
babysko1l
Add glue to the bottom of the part
babysko1m
And glue it on the shoe. Add some more glue to make it stick on the sides
babysko1n
Again we use the modellingknife to make the parts tight with eachother.
babysko1o
In another colour you roll out thin gumpaste and cut out the half sirkle. This is for the toe of the shoe.
Any pattern on this parts has to be done before you cut it out. (like rollingpins og rollingmats)
Glue this on the shoe with the flat side up.
babysko1p
Roll out thin in the second colour, and cut out (here with a multi ribbon cutter) three long ribbons.
babysko1q
Glue one ribbon round the shoe with the join in the middle backside. Use your moddelingknife to get it nicely glued into the shoe.
babysko1r
In the back of the shoe you make a loop with the last ribbon.
babysko1s
You can cut the shoelace like I did here, or you can roll it out or use the sugargun. That is how you like the shoelace to be. Glue them on the shoes.
babysko1t
Here is how this shoes will look like, decorate them after your own choice :o)
Hope you enjoyed the ride with me on how to make this shoes my way.
And welcome back to my next tutorial ;o)
