    I found some adorable Mary Jane's and other shoe patterns at iThinksew.com, but they use fabric soles. I'd like to make them with at least slipper soles if not leather soles. Anyone know where I might find soles for sale?

    Thanks!

    Google it. I found tons of sites, even on ebay. Good luck.

    LeeAnn, what term did you Google? I did that prior to asking, and didn't find anything. Information yes, but nothing to purchase.

    You can use 2 layers of heavy leather which would be available from Tandy or any other leather supplier. That is what my DH has used for making sandals.

    You can also use pieces of conveyor belt but I don't know a supplier for that.

    Have you tried e-mailing the pattern company to see if they recommend anyone? Good luck! :)
