Here is what I came up with: a pair of cute mary janes out of my husband's old 80's acid-washed jeans. Hope you like 'em!




Sorry I didn't take any pics while I was making them, but the soles have heavy cardboard inserts to make them a little more durable.

Thank you! I can wear them out, as long as it isn't raining. The cardboard inserts in the soles are REALLY thick.

They look good.  I think you chose a nice soft denim as apposed to a really stiff denim

I remember these!  And I thought they were fabulous when you showed them to me!  I still think they're fabulous.  I use the word "fabulous" too much, but really, what can you expect?  You are far more talented than I could ever hope to be.
