i ahve a pair of sequined ballet flats and I want to revamp them? any ideas about how to go about doing that? i thought cutting the threads, but there are thousands of indiv. stitches. too time consuming. if u have any ideas, let me know. also, ideas for kitten heel revamp?
 
thanks!

hmm i dunno, i think the only way would be to cut them... maybe it would be easier with a seam ripper???

oh man you need a seam ripper, go out and buy one NOW NOW NOW, seriously, it saved my life, they cost like $1.  i recently bought a really expensive one with a light and everything, but when i just started i just bought like 5 really cheap ones, its good to always have one handy.  you never know how much you need one until you get one.  i always keep one in my purse.

for the first she, i used my fingers. calluses = ouch! but today i wisened up and used wire clippers and just ripped the soul out of those shoes lol. if u push two together and pull like hell, a whole row can come out sometime. first shoe=2 hours w/ breaks. 2nd shoe=45 minutes with breaks.

wow wire clippers rock.
