Are you sick of overpriced shoes or want some that show off more of your own personality? You can make your own with Mary Wales Loomis’ tutorial. Mary has been making her own shoes for years. From the site, “I have always designed and made clothes, and occasionally hats and bags. One day, I looked at my shoes and wondered what was inside them. So I tore a pair of shoes apart with a hammer, screwdriver, and pliers. When I looked at the parts, I realized I could duplicate them.” She also has a book out on shoemaking. [ via ] Link.

    Looks well thought out, but what’s wrong with an off switch?

    I like this, i’d end up forgetting to turn the switch off before I hit the bed or back on when I wake up. Then i’d miss all of those night-time Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    OK, so the bell is turned off but what if they are resourceful solicitors and decide to knock since the bell doesn’t work?

    Interesting project. RTourn – what if you forget to turn it off.

    I like what I have done to help prevent solications…. I put up a $5 sign that says “No Soliciting”
