I found these shoes at some of the high end boutiques in town and loved them but couldn't stomach the price tag so I figured it out myself take a look at my blog for pic and tutorial! just shoes, crystals and e6000 glue is all you need.  Now on to her pettie skirt!

Thank you, I am making a pettiskirt for her today if I can figure it out.  black with hot pink ruffel.  I have been looking at all these boutiques and inspiration took hold.  She will have a high end wardrobe at a fraction of the cost!

I had just got into sewing and crafting for my little one and realized that I should have put them in the childrens section.  everyone that see them on her asks about them and I just cant get them off of her.  I am about to make her a few mor pair in difftrent colors.  every little girl needs some shoes to go with their cute outfits.

no they are flatback crystals there are several diffrent brands but the swaroviski are the best and give you the most shine the next best and alot cheeper are the korean glass ones.  I am thinking of makiing myself some to go with my daughters.  she wont take them off and wants me to have a pair too, lol I tell you what you need on my blog and feel free to ask questions.

SO CUTE!
Our local "marshalls" store had adult converse shoes on clearance for $10, I wonder how much the kids ones are on sale for?
I decorated my phone w swarovski crystals, using the same method and it held up through TONS of abuse!

I found the kis ones on sale at sears for like 14 bucks and Hobby Lobby had the crystals on sale for 2 bucks per pack so I stocked up on both! so when she out grows these she will have more, I also made a pair for her best friend per my daughters request.  I have not lost one crystal!  they have held up to daily wear been washed and still are intact.  She really loves them and goes up to perfect strangers (trying to discourage this) and says "look at my shoes"  She is so proud of them and they seem to be better than any toy I have bought her.  I will be making several more!  I just finiushed a pair of pink high tops with her name on one and a buterfly on the other.

Oh wow, this sounds like my kiddo! She's 6 and is just getting out of that "Everyone who smiles at me is my best friend" stage.

I love them for kids but I really think I need a pair, also! Thank u so much for the tutorial, with over 1,000 views, i'm sorry you didnt get more comments cuz' u definitely deserve them!
