So I was sitting in my room, when I saw my dance bag. I'm a ballet dancer, and I have a pair of pointe shoes that I am currently working in, that will need to be replaced at the end of the dance year (June-ish) if not sooner, because they're getting very weak, and actually ripping slightly.
I was thinking I could turn them in to some sort of a purse.
My basic idea was that I could trim the sides and sew them together, to create a solid back, and an open bottom, but still looking like two separate shoes.
Also I was going to extend them by adding peachy fabric to look like legs, as a front of the purse, and to making it bigger perhaps. However where I am stuck is how I could keep that fabric stiff enough to look like feet/a persons leg.
Do you guys think this purse would even work? Or would I just have two shoes attached with a strange piece of fabric that doesn't look like anything at all.
In my head I see the most beautiful purse in the world, but it's hard to describe.
I'd appreciate any help/opinions!
Yay!! I found a picture kind of what I was thinking...maybe...sort of. http://www.movementconnection.com/browse.cfm/4,882.htm
