I went thrifting today, and surprise surprise! i found the sweetest ballet flats ever at value village! they're from the gap, and they used to have ugly elastic straps on them, but i cut them off instead. Anyways, after snipping off the straps and adding the bows, here they are:

all you need is some fabric ribbon with contrasting thread and seed beads.
-fold the ribbon in half and sew down the middle with crazy coloured thread. my thread is blue, on the yellow ribbon.
-tie a neat bow with the ribbon and secure it with a bit of fabric glue. I used glue gun to attach the bow to the outside corner of my shoe, but you might be better off using superglue or likewise.
-then add some more glue and while its still wet, push some seed beads into it and let dry.
now you have cool shoes.
what do you think?
