Hi everyone,
I'm fairly new here but I thought I might as well post this here..

I decided to redecorate my sister's old pink pumps as she was going to throw them away (they were VERY grubby).
I just covered them with some fabric straps and stuck on a bow (made from the ribbons in tops to hang them up).
They aren't very durable and will probably fall apart pretty soon, but at least I prolonged their life a bit! - My sister decided to keep them!

Here's a picture of before and after:

I did it really quickly because I didn't think that my sister would actually keep them - just procrastinating really!
I used superglue around the bottom and then a line of stitching around the top. They definitely aren't going to last for that long but it was fun to do!
It might be an idea to spray them with that waterproof stuff.. not sure if it'll work though.
