    #1. Draw out the shape of the soles on an old unwanted diary cover.

    #2. Cut out the soles & sandal straps.

    #3. Layout of the cut soles & sandal straps.

    #4. Poke 6 x holes onto soles & put the straps through the holes & glued the ends of the straps onto the soles.

    As I said on FB, excellent addition to a wicked figure. What we need now, is a sheet that replicates tire pattern rubber. [edit] - Hmmmm...maybe instead, some R/C tires (regular street type)?
