After um-ing and ahh-ing about making my own ruby slippers for quite some time, I took the plunge after seeing these lovely replicas:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23479177

So I promptly went out and bought the shoes (black leather pumps, I wasn't going for exact replicas but I did want the thick heel), 10 metres of sequins and a bottle of fabric/leather glue.

However, once I finished one shoe and the heel of the other, I found that 10 metres was NOT enough!!
So I had to go all the way back to the shop and get 7 more metres - It didn't help that the shops with the cheapest sequins didn't have red Sad

All in all, they took me about 3 days but only about 2-3 hours each day.
On to the pictures!!











ETA: Here's a HQ picture if anyone wanted to see a closeup.

My eyes bugged out when I saw the picture of the completed shoe.  You really did a fantastic job on these!  I know I would find myself staring at my feet all of the time. 

Oh, just think of the compliments you'll receive when wearing these.   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

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.
