1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Reconstructed ballerina flats on: June 30, 2006 11:34:12 AM
I love ballerina flats, what I dont like is their price  (40 is a bit too much for me), so after browsing this wonderful forum I thought I could do them myself.

I bought some pairs of these very cheap (3 each) and plain canvas-type shoes



I cut the front part and a bit of the sides to give it the typical ballerina shape, sewed some colourful bias tape around the raw edge, added some embellishments, and these are the results:


 






The beige ones are the first I made, and I cut too much from the heel part. When I walked fast they slipped, so I had to sew some elastic, and now they stay in place.

I love them a lot. Theyre very comfortable, can get washed in the washing machine, and with four pairs I always have cute shoes to match with my clothes!

Hope you like them!
