hey...i made these shoes my junior year of highschool...sorry i dont have any before pictures....they were just plain canvas mary-janes from walmart...i got rid of the top strap and stuff...

anyway..here they are.





those are actually the SECOND pair i made...a german exchange student who was a friend of mine...was OBSESSED with the ones i made for myself...so the above photos are the ones i made for her as a going-home gift (it had to go to a million different walmarts to find those shoes again! they were pretty much out of stock)

here's the ones that i made the first time...for myself...




i had planned for the strings to lace up my calves...but...that kind of ribbon wouldnt stay so i decided wrapping it aorund my ankle was just fine

hahaha you're funny. i actually have a stash of those plain canvas shoes at home (when i actually found a walmart that had them...i stocked up like crazy. haha) if i have a size 9...i could probably make you some. (although...if you have skinny feet like me...you'll want a size smaller...i wear 9's usually and i ended up buying a 7.5 for myself. but an 8 would have worked too. my feet are just unusually skinny. haha) i have to wait till i go back home though...probably over winter break. anyway...i'll let you know when i go home next weekend if i have any in your size. ok?


but seriously...you could make these shoes. they werent hard at all. just a bit time cosuming.

Similar, but not the same, pretty much they are canvas and that is it, they are light blue  ballet flats.
