What do normal people do when their shoes fall apart, go buy a new one right??? Well not me, thinking I'm all crafty I went to fix my princesses shoe, they were totally falling apart, don't know how that happened. Then I decide it needs a whole lot of ribbon to make it look better, LOL. Mind you, this is all without stepping foot in a store, so I figure glue gun should work, and since her black shoes need to stay all black, the only ribbon I have is like the thinnest little ribbon possible. Do I make it work, well you be the judge of that. Gosh sometimes, I hate being so cheap. Oh who am I kidding, I am totally proud of myself, and my daughter seems to LOVE her new shoes, so despite the 3 hours I slaved trying to save $10 bucks, I guess it was worth it.
Enjoy, my very first SHOE redo.
|See what I mean, TOTALLY coming apart.|
|Pretty funny right?|
|My bright idea, lol.|
|This picture is so crappy, but I was trying to show the border of ribbon I put all around the bottom.|
|After tearing the shoes apart even more, I had to cover it up, so I just layed strips of ribbon on the shoes, see.....|
|Another picture trying to make them look more decent than they are, he he.|
|Pretend like you can't see any glue, OK.|
|And yes pretend like there are no more scuff marks.|
SO there you have it. What do you think, should I have just gone and bought a new pair, or did it turn out ok, be honest!!!!
I'm off to my kids Christmas concert tonight, (that's why we needed this shoe fixed) maybe I'll share a song with you all tomorrow. They are so dang cute!!
As always ENJOY!
