    This is a pair of tiny (3") crotchet shoes made for me by a very elderly student some years ago. They are exquisitely made and after the crotchet work was finished she dipped them in sugar water. They are still stiff after all these years. Don't you just love those heels!!

    I don't think one would get far in a pair of crocheted shoes stiffened with sugar water, do you?

      I am afraid not, so sorry! As they were a gift I don't have any idea how she made them, I wish I did!
