Shoe refashion

Jill from Made it on Monday started up a challenge each week: 'Make it by Monday', where she sets a theme and you can post your idea on that theme. Last week was outdoor games and activities and I linked up the bean bags I made. This week I decided to pretty up some plain pumps I have.

I like them but they show a little too much toe cleavage... :)

So I made some flowers (first time making some like this but they were really easy!), I think they're called folded flowers or something? But you just use nine circles, one as your base and the others in quarters and hot glue around and finish with a button.

So I got to this point and Izzy noticed I was about to glue them onto my shoes. She did not agree with that and promptly retrieved some of her own for the flowers, which incidently she did all the folding for.

So I glued the flowers onto a grip.

Yes they're pretty massive on her feet!

And now I have flowers for any shoes and even for hair if I don't mind cheesy hair...

And a before...

And another after:

I love having a theme! I've been too nervous for something like this before but this challenge just pushed me to go for it.
