15  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / "There's no place like home...." on: August 02, 2004 02:00:08 AM
I'm new, and thought i'd post a project that i've worked on for the last two days.
(Sorry if the pic's a bit large)
I got married last year, and wore a pair of beige suede shoes that havent been out of the wardrobe since. I really liked the shape of them though, so didnt want to give them/throw them away.
When i got an invite to a friends wedding reception and i started fretting about what to wear, i thought i'd re-vamp my wedding shoes!

How i did it....

(I'm in the UK, so the materials i bought might not be available in the states)

I used a red, cold water dylon fabic dye, painted this onto the shoes, waited til it dried, then i used 'Appli glue' in pillar box red (Appli glue is a "Permanent, washable water-based glue for applique, foiling, and decoration on card, wood, glass, fabric, leather and most surfaces." It's also really flexible.)
I applied the glue quite thickly, and added each sequin by hand with a pair of tweezers.
Ok, sequins.... well, u know that sequins are kinda domed? like little saucers? for the next bit, if i say the sequins were used upside-down, it means that it's as if the saucer is the wrong way up..ok?!  Huh Undecided (hope this is making sense!)
I found that around the edges of the shoe (where the sole meets the upper, and the edge bit...where u put ur foot in) that it was best to use the sequins upside-down. This is because they stick to the curved bits better when they're upside-down, it also means they they won't catch on things when they're being worn. The rest of the shoe should be covered in sequins the 'right way up' as they reflect more light this way.
When i'd added all of the sequins, set it all aside to dry, and i was covered in glue, and had the stiffest neck i've ever had, i made the large bows for the front.
AND.........when they were finally dry, i stuck them on, and added the lil ones on the back  Grin


Hope u like them!
