HOW TO MAKE ROPE FOR CORD-SOLES

Girls, if you never received the update for the free Lucet-Cord Tutorial, find it for FREE Download HERE 

The Crocheted Lucet-Cord-Method is my favorite for creating Cord-Soles. 
I attach soles to all my crochet slipper-designs, in order to turn them into street-shoes! Like Canvas-shoes you know! Or Toms, or Espadrilles, Alpargates, etc. Every part of the world have their own name for this kind of rope-sole-shoes! LOVE them!
