Hello Readers. I hope you are having a good day. I haven't done any shoe makeovers on this blog, so it's time for me to pretend to be a cobbler. I say pretend because I don't know much about putting shoes together. I am going to adjust these shoes a little. Let's get started.
I was given these beautiful red shoes for my last birthday. (Thanks J.U.) The color and fabric are wonderful. They are comfortable, but they slide off a little too easily.
They are hand made. There isn't enough "hand made" in this world if you ask me.
I found this soft deerskin cord at the fabric/craft store. It didn't cost much and it matched the shoes.
I started with my trusty hot glue gun. You can see from the picture it is well loved and well used. I glued the cord up against the heel. I glued on the bottom and up along the sides of the shoe. I tied the cord around my ankle first to see what the position would be when I wore them.
The cord comes up and back around the back of my ankle, I wrapped it around and tied it in a knot. This cord is so soft. The shoes are more comfortable and easier to wear. I love how the cord looks as well. I have worn them a couple time already and the hot glue is holding well.
Thanks for reading, now go make something fabulous for yourself.
