I started with a pair of kitten-heel flip flops...

nd cut some fabric out of an old stretchy camisole. I tacked it on the bottom of the shoes (the tacks are now more silver/black because the white color coating came off after walking in them a bit) and then gathered it in the middle with some string...



This is my first attempt at shoe reconstruction...a little amatuer with the thumbtacks, but I'm very pleased with the overall look!

Very nice! Do the pins make tapping noises when you walk? When I was younger my friends and I would stick them in the bottoms of our shoes and pretend to be tap dancers Cheesy

haha that's too funny!  I haven't noticed any tapping noises, although I'll certainly be listening for them now!  That'd be doubly funny because I used to be a dancer--12 years of tap!  Maybe I can start shuffling and time stepping through hallways in my sandals Smiley

Cute! I need a new pair of flats and I have a lot of old flip flops... I might have to borrow this idea Smiley
