Project Day: $5 Shoes Not Enough








I bought these new shoes on sale a few days ago for $5. But you know me. It didn't end there. I had visions of a transformation. A mismatched colourful one. There was no turning back!
I attached my buttons to the middle of my flowers with craft glue. Then I added the bias tape all around the edges of the shoe using the same glue [ start at the back of the shoe where the seam of the shoe is ]. Attach my decorated flower on top with glue and leave to dry for a few hours.
I am thinking of lovely things to do this weekend.
Hope you are doing the same.
