So! I upcycled some shoes. Here’s what they looked like before:
(Also, don’t you love my Kindle case? It’s adorable! I love it so much, and also I don’t feel so paranoid about leaving it on a desk when I go use the restroom at a cafe or something, since it looks like a notebook-ish. And did I mention it’s adorable?)
A few weeks ago, Cat from Cut Out + Keep ~~ this really cool social networking site for crafters like moi, or should I say, US (I’m assuming, since you’re on my blog) ~~ asked me if I was interested in being a featured member on the site! Actually they asked me quite a while ago, but being the weirdo that I am, I totally didn’t notice until a few weeks ago. I thought I’d totally missed out when I responded, but nope! They were still willing to collaborate with me. So check out my featured member page, yo! **Brush dirt off shoulders.**
Also, go check out some of the other projects on Cut Out + Keep. People get so creative on there, and there are some projects I’ve stashed away for my weekends. I’m also fairly active on there when I can get a chance to post my projects on yet another site, so if you want to stalk me further, you can follow my profile.
They’re even cuter in person–so cute that I felt a little bad gluing extra stuff on there. But too late! And I loved how these DIY Upcycled Ruffled Chiffon Shoes turned out. 🙂 They would make a really great statement piece to wear to a wedding, and are the perfect way to add bright colors to an otherwise basic outfit.
Here’s the tutorial if you want to make your own. The method is really simple and easy. The actual cutting, sewing, gluing takes about 30 minutes, but if you factor in drying time, they took about twelve hours to make. This depends on the glue you use, and I used E6000 so I let them dry overnight.
The shoes are also up on Cut Out + Keep, so don’t forget to go check out the website!
