First off, these were a bitch to make! They took me about five months to complete (not working on them everyday... I'm a college kid).

I used embroidery fabric (whatever it's called) because it was stiff and I was going to do some kind of embroidery on it anyway. I cut out the feather shapes with scissors. I painted them gold with Tulip fabric paint. I used gold and silvery-gold embroidery floss to make them look more like feathers. That took the longest! I even took some with me to work on them when I went out to lunch with my mom and a couple of our friends. Then I sewed each of the feathers to the shoes and painted the white parts on the shoes gold.

I may sew the feather ends down so they don't end up getting caught on stuff.

Anyway, here you go:

Oh, I love these. Hermes is the coolest god. Are you thinking of making a staff to go with them. I bet all your friends are jealous. Good job. This makes my afghan look rather uninspired. Sad

Thank you!  Cheesy I think that would look really awesome! I would suggest you think of an easier way to make them because it is time consuming doing it the way I did.
