Ok, I LOVED the shoes in this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24397.0
so I had to make my own version, I got a pair of platform shoes at walmart for 8 bucks and I got some pins and pinned the sequins in. They're not quite
finished yet, I have a lot more sequins to put on. I love wearing them around, you can't tell in the pict but they sparkle when I walk and it's a lot of fun.http://img155.echo.cx/img155/8449/dscf00392rg.jpg
A couple people pm'd me asking for a tutorial for these so here it is:
Get a pair of platform shoes you want to make beautiful. I used a FOAM pair from walmart. I haven't tried it yet with the 'wood type' shoes so you might want to use the 'foamish' kind just to be sure
I used straight pins - you can get these in the beading section at your local craft store but they're cheaper & you get more if you get them in the sewing section.
Pick out some closely matching sequins, or some that contrast well. You will probably not
be able to get indavidual colors and will probably have to pick through a bag once you get it for the colors you want.
Let the beautifying begin!
To attach the sequins, grap something relatively heavy that you can "hammer" the sequins in with, do NOT use a regular hammer; it's way to heavy and the pins are small enough that it's too easy to hammer them in too far and make large holes in the shoe that the sequin doesn't color up.
Poke the pin through the hole in the sequin and hold it where you'd like it to go in the heel of the shoe.
Carefuly hammer the pin into the shoe, this is kind of tricky. Hold the pin with one hand (being careful not to hit yourself with your hammer object) hold the pin until it's far enough in that it's hard to hold. This is very important, if you don't hold it the pin will bend and you'll have to pull it out and grab another pin.
There you go.. if it's too confusing let me know (this is my first tut) and I'll help you out.
