i got kinda tired of my old plain black ballet flats, so i decided to embellish them with a bunch of buttons i had lying around the house. i had to use fairly heavy-duty thread because the shoe itself is a soft leather with a nylon lining. didn't take long and was really easy. Yay!

As I've said I love the simply great modifications. Super Cool! I also collect buttons from thrifts for future projects.
