I went shopping for shoes....again. They can put a man on the moon, but they can NOT make a truly fabulous, cute shoe that is comfortable! Why???
I saw so many shoes that I wanted, but I just can't wear them anymore. I love all the embellishments that are in style right now. This pair costs only $395. What? That's just a little out of my budget, and I could never walk in them.
As I was shopping, I started to get an idea. I could buy the comfortable shoes and embellish them myself. I couldn't wait to get started. I decided to start with fabric flowers. I found a tutorial on youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEbpMvAGs5k I learned what I needed to know and made this flower:
I decided that it wasn't necessary to cut circles, so I just cut squares. Just bein lazy I guess.
I cut about 3 or 4 sizes.
Next step was to singe them with a lighter. I used up the small one and finished with the long one. I will use the long one from now on, the small one hurts my thumb after a while. But, the long one tends to be too much, so be careful. It can do way more than singe if you aren't.
Here's all the pieces. The large one was to flat so, I clipped it in a few places and singed again. That did the trick. I did the same thing on the smallest pieces.
Here you go, two finished flowers. I put a few small red beads in the middle.
Then I sewed the flowers to a piece of ribbon.
Here is my new sandal. Very comfy!
I just tied the ribbon in a bow, under the flower.
How cute are they? I can't wait to wear them.
I will definitely make more of these!!
Now all I need is for the weather to co-operate and get warm!!
