A pair of High Order Derivative Common Sensible Soles of Obviousness is just what you need to start some interesting conversation that does not involve complex numbers or speaking in Greek.
So, to our resident subatomic particle geek Instructables member kelseymh, here is how to make clown shoes, giant is redundant here, to step on any theory that obviously does not conform to the natural laws of physics and matter. Perfect to wear to any debate, because you can show them who is the ..... more awesome.
Disclaimer: No one can predict what effect wearing these clown shoes can have because they have been endowed with certain unalienable rights by their creator or maybe they just evolved that way.
Step 1: Stop clowning around, you need stuff...
For this project you will need:
duct tape, any color will do
fabric in any pattern or color.
I had some leftover robo-fleece so it may help to have a stiff liner fabric to double up the material to make it easier to work with.
thick string/rope to use as giant laces
We won't overanalyze the properties of cardboard, but it makes a great building material for our clown shoes. The same goes for duct tape, you always need a supply on hand.
glue, tacky glue and a hot glue gun
utility knife or scissors
an awl or similar instrument/tool to poke a hole
a pair of paper hole punchers
a marker to mark where to cut unless you just eyeball it. Dimensions are not supercritical here.
The sewing in this instructable was done on a sewing machine. You could actually do this all by hand but it would take a lot longer. Only a straight stitch was used.
