I was inspired by someone who redid her ballet flats and found a pair I had lying around (I can't seem to find the thread anymore).

This is the before picture


I took the soles off first


I used old stockings that were really easy to sew on


This is with the soles on, but you can't really see  Tongue


And this is them all finished!


Detail shot


They turned out better than I hoped they would, I just hope they won't fall apart on me...

Thanks everyone!

PimpyMcPimpin, I did it by hand. I didn't take the whole shoe apart, so it didn't fit under my sewing machine... And don't you worry, I'm new to sewing too  Wink
