I made these cute little shoes using the tutorial from this blog.  I had never worked with interfacing, before, but once I figured that out, it was a breeze (aside from the part that I thought I was being "smart" and changed up a step from the tutorial, only to find out, I misunderstood and had to go back to redo it the way it instructed).
