This next project was thought up by blogger Love Megan, in her DIY for Delilah post.
Here is a picture of the shoes she did for her little one:
So cute!!! The more I look at this picture the more I want a pair!
The snug has a pair of flats that she has worn and worn and worn. Unfortunately they were made of some sort of velvety material, so this happened.
Why mostly on the left foot, I don’t know. The glitter was a perfect solution to this problem, there was no way I would be able to nicely recover those with fabric since the soles are so thin.
We also used painters tape to create a straight line, since I am no good at straight lines. Seriously, I can’t even hold a ruler straight.
A note about the glitter. We don’t have a lot of glitter in our house (gasp!), only three very small containers of green, silver and purple. The snug was insistent that we use black glitter, so had to buy this from the craft store, but this was the only thing we bought for this project. ALSO, the picture above was taken after we completed the shoes. This project uses a super small amount of glitter. The leftover black will be put to good use this coming Halloween though.
The shoes turned out extremely cute. There are now three different textures, satin, velvet and glitter! So far the glitter has held up extremely well (it has been about a month), though I don’t let her wear these shoes to the park.
P.S. My Toms from years ago are starting to get holes and worn, hopefully I can think of something to fix those, since I feel they are beyond glitter.
