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.
