10 year old Doc Marten's:



+ one inspired Saturday afternoon + steak knife + buttons, bias tape, elastic and polka-dotted ribbon =

Dainty Maryjanes!





This project was inspired by a post I saw, once upon a time, where someone cut up their high top converse into cute little low top shoes.  And also by my obsession with maryjanes.

Though it's only a facelift, I think they're pretty darn cute!

Those are really cool!  Did you use a sewing machine to put the bias tape on?  Was it hard to do [if that's what you used]?  Those look really professional!

These are adorable!  Doc Marten's are kind of heavy, do they stay on when you walk?  I'm very impressed!

Wow.  This is the most impressive footwear to footwear transformation in this contest.  They're awesome!  Of course, now I'm wondering how you did it...
