Shoe Making

Have been wanting to make a pair of shoes or maybe just want a comfortable pair and look for years before find some. Am down to 3 pairs (1 had tape to keep the shoe to sole). Bought some of those slipper like shoes that seem so popular now days. Maybe a lot of others are looking for shoes fit. Have collected some internet info where people have done it themselves. Some supplies- old leather purse to use for leather, cork sheet to see if will hold together and be a good cushion, felt have made with some wool, fabric. Just need to start!! Did see someones webpage who used bicycle tire for soling and wonder how to flatten and cut it, how would use old bike innertubes (tried cutting and was like chewing rubber!).
Cork, organic corduroy, linen. could also use old jeans...
