I have difficult feet. As in a sales person once let me try on 30 pairs and none fit me correctly. (I felt like a stepsister )
So, when I have shoes that fit, they stay in rotation!
Until they end up like this:
This pair is, I think, one of the first pairs of heels I bought so … At least 10 years old.
So in 2017 I thought, let’s do something!
I had fabric scraps from a half finished dress and I really loved the pattern. So I googled and started. I snapped the belt buckle of, Aaaaaaaannndd, didn’t finish, because it came to the strap part and I didn’t know what to do. They half finished dress isn’t finish either. Do you see a pattern?
Now, sitting in our new house and lacking inspiration for something else, I decided now is the right time to finish. I started where I had left off (or of?) , with one shoe almost done and the other one like 5% done.
I also didn’t look for a tutorial because I GOT THIS.
Yesterday evening I stuck fabric to the strap, and held it in place with clothespins. Yes, tacky glue with cloth spins against leather.
This is the result.
Note to self, don’t do that again! I made the places wet and it came off. Ooph!
I didn’t add the belt buckle, because I didn’t know how… I shouldn’t have chopped it off. I tried them on and they fit with the regular velcro so will see.
Also, I love my heat gun! It made this soooo much easier! Not waiting around literally watching glue dry is the best!
(The inside looks icky because the normal sole needed to make place for my own sole)
Still need a coat of finisher!
I’m thinking of adding a bow… Or not. Idk. Perhaps the pattern is already to much.
(I couldn’t find a shoe tag? So misc?)
