A Series in Red

Every now and then I get stuck creatively. I've been stuck for a while and I wanted to challenge myself so I am doing a series this week (or two) called "A Series in Red".

I picked a color: Red. Then I pinned to pinterest some interesting photos in red that for some reason or another grabbed my attention. The photo might have been all red or with a tiny pop of red, but somehow red had to be included. Then I designed a shoe around that inspiration. This is how I create shoes anyways, I see something that inspires an idea, but this was a more concentrated challenge. I think only one pair designed so far is ALL red. Most just have a pop of red.

I have so far created seven with about four more in my head that I just have to sew up and bring to fruition. Many of the shoes are made from vintage or one-of-a-kind materials, so I am not going to necessarily add these styles to my shop as I may not be able to duplicate them. Some are really cutesy baby shoes, and some are more abstract and conceptual. I did this as an art form and not as a money maker. I hope to list one pair a day until I am out of ideas or over the color of red (whichever comes first. Ha!). However, I will offer the one pair I made here on my blog at the end of each post with a paypal link. There will be one pair in one size up for grabs if anyone wants them. The size will either be 6 months or 12 months as these are my most popular sizes.

I'm working on my first "A Series in Red" post and it'll be up tomorrow at noon.
See you then!

  1. That's a fun idea! I'm looking forward to seeing what you create, but I'll have to catch up on them later... because we're heading to the hospital to be induced tonight!!! Pray for us :-)
