I'm here now for a week and I love this website! Here is my entry: Shoes!



This is what I used: two packs of foam, three mopping rags (I only used two), a poker game, acrylic paint, Velcro and soft soles.



This is my coupon:



First I made soles out of the foam. I used the soft soles as a mold. I made two soles with 6 layers of foam and two soles with 2 layers of foam.



After that I made the tops of the shoes out of mopping rags.



I also made two strokes of mopping rag with a piece of Velcro on the end and two buttons out of the mopping rags, the pokerfiches and the acrylic paint.



I glued stripes on the bottom of the tinnest soles of foam.



After that I begin to construct. I hot glued the top of the shoe on the tickest soles. First the front and the back. After that I cut the mopping rag in to shape and glued the rest of the shoe.



Now I put the soles on the bottom of the shoes, a piece of Velcro on the shoe, the buttons on the strokes of mopping rags and the strokes on the shoe. After that I put the soft soles in the shoes and they are ready!



Thank you for looking and don't forget to vote!

Yes they are very comfortable! They are very soft on the inside and have a thick sole.

Thank you for the comments. This was my first try to make shoes. I made the top first out of a piece of leftover fabric to make sure my selfmade pattern was right. I loved to make them.

The buttons where wet in the picture. I can see why you think of hamburger patties.. Tongue

Why is it that I can no longer buy anything that has a slight chance I could make it myself? Even if I don't know how to make it, or it's cheaper to buy...I can no longer buy it because "I could make that myself".

I am so impressed with your creativity and use of dollar items! These are really cute. I had no idea that making shoes could be so simple. (Or maybe they're not that simple, you just make it look easy!)

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I thought about making shoes when I was looking around the Dollar store... and then I realized that I'd have no idea where to start!  Maybe now I can make some with your tutorial:) They look great!
