New Shoes!

Remember this fabric? Well it's UFO time (unfinished objects) and these have been waiting to be made for an age, so I cut them out.

The template is available for download from Craft Stamper, look for Bejewelled May 2010 ( yes that's how long I've been meaning to make these!)

I stamped some ribbon with a Zetti stamp and used it for the label.


Stitched the upper to the sole on the machine with a zigzag stitch.
Added cord to neaten the top edge, lace and velvet ribbon. A few sequins and beads.


A cheap necklace provided the embellishment (Primarni!)
A few tiny gems to finish.


And some fabulous silk ribbon for the bows.
It's not very often I'm pleased with something........... but I do like these!
I hope you do too!
PS.. I've got plans for some grungy black ones and some vintage wedding ones.......one day!
