Here is an example of the Alpargata pattern that we made while developing the patterns!

Oesher, Jill sent in some photos of her first Alpargata “1 shoe down, 1 more to go”

I love it, I found some Alpargata pattern shoes! These are the most attractive and unique shoes ever. The design is so cool and different from other brands. It’s a must have for every fashionista! And also love the sneakers of shoestheory.September 21, 2021 at 9:01 am #26690Laura
What type of fabric is recommended for the “stabilizer fabric”? The link for this in the pdf instructions is not live.
Thanks!September 24, 2021 at 1:49 pm #26721MaggieKeymaster
I believe we used Pellon’s Peltex Ultra-Firm Sew-In stabilizer for our prototypes. (https://www.joann.com/peltex-fabric-stabilizer/7477532.html or https://www.amazon.com/Peltex-Ultra-Firm-Sew-Stabilizer-15-Yard/dp/B008I68JYM/)
Similar sew-in stabilizers would also work. If you’d prefer to iron in a fusible stabilizer, I would recommend removing the seam allowance on the heel stabilizer pattern.
For shoes made from an already stiff material, such as denim or canvas, it’s possible that a heel stabilizer cut from the same material as the rest of the shoe could provide sufficient stability.
Thank you for letting us know about the broken links!June 24, 2022 at 3:47 am #30076smith8395johnParticipant
