This is my favorite project I've ever done-mostly because I've never redone shoes. I love them, I've worn them every day, I'm so excited. I hope you like them, too.

I got a pair of Blowfish Miami's Humvee boots and they were too tight on the calves. I thought maybe since they were wool they would stretch out, but they didn't. So I split the back seam, inserted a panel of blue and purple plaid wool, and some ties. Now they are adjustable to go over jeans or wear with tights! Also, to be decorative, I salvaged a lace applique from an old lady top and stitched it to the sides. Now it looks embroidered! I LOVE THESE!!!!

Thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, character becomes destiny, you become confused, just be nice.

Thanks guys! ^_^ It took a lot of prodding for me to do this- cause I didn't want to mess up- but now that I have I've been remaking shoes all over the place! (shhh don't tell my professors, they think I've been doing homework)
