I saw these shoes last summer and really wanted them, but there were none in my size:

 

and I had told myself I would do the next craft challenge...
I never wore these shoes anymore, but me being small, they still fit me thesame as about 5 years ago  Wink



I took some gingham fabric, white cotton tape, red felt and green ribbon and glued it all down with either fabric glue or superglue. Then where the fabric was over laying the edges of the bottom of the shoe or sole, I tucked and tucked and tucked. And then glued it some more. Hence, the title. Here's the result:



Hope you like!
