p/s: Think Before You Throw! :-P
Tuesday, November 6, 2012
I wear heels to office almost every working day but flat shoes are my essential wear during weekends. I bought a number of flats during pregnancy and still wearing them until today. Among my favourites are these identical flats from Bonita but due to frequent wearing, both of them have become worn out and the white one just lost the blingz two weeks ago *sad*.
I know I have to depart with the grey one but the white one is still in wearable condition so last Sunday night I decided to do something with both of them.
First, I cut off both blingz from the grey shoes because they are still in good condition. Instead of sticking them permanently on another shoe, I decided to make a shoe clip which is more convenient as it is transferable. I already bought some clip earrings some time ago so I stick them at the back of the ribbons using UHU glue and stick a layer of felt on top of the metals to hold them stronger and voila, the shoe clips are done. Now I can decorate any plain shoe without any hassle.
So, what happened to the white flats?
The same process was done to it where I cut off the blingz and whatever was left. Using a green gross grain ribbon, I made a pair of loop straps and also a pair of pompom flowers using white felt. I put a crystal bead in the middle of the flower just to enhance it and sew the flower on top of the ribbons. At 3:00 am last Sunday night I became a cobbler by sewing the decorations to the shoes and ta-daaa... the shoes went through a makeover and able to meet the sun again soon!
