This last couple of weeks have been chock-a-block with work stuff, and more of the boring side of the work stuff too. So this weekend after running errands and a nice lunch I was desperate to CRAFT. It was just necessary before I could do a single other thing. Do you have that sometimes?
With the sunshine that was out I was inspired to do something about my summer wardrobe.
I decided that these lovely shoes deserved some flashing up
I got busy with some embroidered daises I have, first paying about where to put them with the help of masking tape. Then I stuck them down with a hot melt glue gun.
I was careful to stick down every petal. I tried to convince myself that it was for security but it might more because I love glue guns
How about a daisy chain around the ankle?
I did think that it is possible that the flowers may droop without enough support, but I figure I can always iron them, being careful not to remelt the glue, and if need be, attach a piece of stiff felt behind them.
I decided I didn't want any at the toe, and I was happiest using the power of three* both on the strap and on the wedge.
Got anything stuck on your shoes lately?
