Well it all started with these pair of white flats that were really nasty and most of the bottoms of them had been chewed out by a puppy at one time. So I decided to try to transform them to something that i could possibly wear. I only have one out of the two done so far, but i need some opinions on them.

Detail of what they look like now

Here they are a before and after picture

Should I continue and do the other one? There kind of fraying whats that stuff you put on them so they don't?Anything i should add or change on them? Or anyother comments or rootstock's. Thanks

they look cute. I say, keep going. the stuff that keeps them from fraying is called fray check. At least that is one brand name.

Teesha Moore inspired patches--anyone want to swap?

I think you're heading in a good direction and should keep going. Along with the Fray Check, maybe you could a string of white beads or fake pearls to go around the edge. That would also help to hide the fraying edges.

I really like them..maybe you should try some bias tape from the same fabric ur making the rosettes from.. that should give it a neat finish... Smiley
