Thank you!

ichloe92, it's just alot of sitting there, spreading on some glue and placing rhinestones.  Movies make the time go faster :-)

sparksfly, I have no idea!  I used around 7500 rhinestones in a variety of sizes (7, 9, 12, 16, 20)  You'd probably want to start with  20 gross each of 7 and 9, 10 gross on the size 12, 5 gross on the size 16, and 3-5 gross on the size 20.    Then you can always order more if need be!

Thanks BlueCherryFaerie, I Sew Cute, and bennysmom!

I ended up using around 7000-7500 rhinestones for both the shoes, using GemTac glue.  They stand up pretty well.  I live in Seattle, so I worried about the rain.  They are okay as long as I don't go slogging through muddle puddles.  And I don't know many people who would slog through puddles in heels ;-)  I'd also worry about snow, but again, not really good heel weather!
