Embellished Shoes.

1. Take one pair of unworn satin shoes.

2. Glue small scraps of pretty vintage floral fabrics all over the surface. (I used PVA glue.)
3. Line the innersoles with antique French wallpaper.
4. Add layers of old lace fragments and braids.

5. And finish with miniature millinery flowers, pearls, buttons, beads and glass glitter on the heels.
Have a great week,
Niki x

  2. How lovely! Even though they are quite different, they reminded me of my wedding shoes. I took white crochet espadrilles, and embellished them with tiny pink satin rosebuds and added pink satin ribbon to lace around and tie at my ankles. They were perfect with my white cotton vintage skirt and blouse. You are so talented, and your shoes are just gorgeous.
