Overhaul the boring
Sometimes I just get random trims, thinking one day it will come to me.
I was wearing my plain cheap suede wedges and messing around with a bullion applique I’d picked up a while back. Toe? Heel? Both?
So I put the whole shebang together.
Appliques, ribbon, some little brass stamps, a leather needle, and some 527 glue.
Gluing down the appliques was a bit of a pain, but other than that… a few hours later…
I think they turned out rather well, and go with that Russian Imperial theme I’ve been slightly obsessed with. They weren’t particularly difficult to do. Just a bunch of tacking down, really, either with glue or with thread.
Drooling over the mortgage-payment expensive shoes is all very well and good, but chances are you’ve got the skills to make something that’s entirely your own. And you still get to pay your mortgage.
