Title: Let's do it for johnny, man!
Post by: RescueToaster on April 06, 2006 08:10:13 PM
Take one pair of $2 old lady flats from walmart.
Add tons of embroidery floss you found in your mom's closet.

Combine over a period of a few hours while watching cheesy movies. Embellish with 50 cent ribbon. and...voila! These were completely freehanded and are the first thing I've ever embroidered that wasn't a counted crossstich from a kit. Yikes, that canvas is unbelievably hard to get a needle through. My finger tips are killing me!

inside view(guess what movie I was watching):


Outside view:

Close up of the two sides:


You can't tell in the picture, but the sunset and lightning bolt and sunset are accented with gold thread. Thanks for looking!

well they used to have that weird elastic stuff over the top of the foot, but i cut it out. The only person I've ever seen actually wear the weird elasticy shoes was my great g-ma back in the day. Hence, I associate them with old ladies. lol


thanks to everyone for saying such nice things!
