Hello and goodbye

I saw this floral boots DIY on A Beautiful mess awhile ago and kept meaning to try it out.  Week after week, I found myself delaying the project.  My excuse was that I didn't have the right fabric, but really I was just too chicken to deface a pair of shoes.  The craft gods must have sensed my fear because last weekend one of my favorite shirts ripped and I suddenly found myself with some extra fabric.  Here's how I used the ripped shirt to bring new life to a pair of black shoes:

They were cute, right?  Notice that I used the term "were."  Sadly, these shoes no longer exist.  After proudly wearing my new footwear to church a couple of creases appeared and then the fabric just tore away from the shoe.  I think the wet and slushy snow covered ground might of had something to do with that happening.  Blast my impatience!   

RIP fabric covered shoes, I will miss you.

But, perhaps I will reincarnate you as glitter shoes?   Oooh, glitter!


  1. OH YES!!! GLITTER up a pair of old black shoes on the toes!!! will be very adorable!! :)

  2. Wonderful attempt! It's actually real cute but too bad the fabric wasn't able to hold up but hey! at least you were able to wear them proudly. You made memories of it while it lasted. Through all of your crafts and ideas, I hope you know that I am living vicariously through you. Keep up with the posts and crafts. I love it all! Once I have time or lets say after I graduate and settle down a bit, I may have to ask for some pointers. : ) I already have ideas of sanding and staining my IKEA furniture. Excited!

  3. Thanks for the encouragement. We actually just purchased something today and I'll be posting about it sooon....


Thanks for your comment!
