    i've never made sandals before, but i'm thinking of making a pair for my active toddler daughter. most of the time we go barefoot, but the playground blacktop gets so hot in the summer, and i don't want her little tootisies to burn. i want her to have something i can carry in my purse and quickly slip on her feet whenever there's hot pavement. most of the toddler sandals i see in stores are hard-soled, which is not the best thing for a little girl still learning to walk. she needs soft-soled shoes so her feet can flex naturally, but most of the soft-soled shoes i've seen in catalogs cover the whole foot and probably get hot in the summer. i'm thinking of making something out of leather, hemp, and maybe a bead or two. they need to be durable enough to survive her running around the playground for a month or two, but they probably won't need to last much longer than that because she's growing so fast. how do i go about making them?

    Sounds cool. Let me know when you figure out how to make them. I'd love to see a picture.
