I made myself a pair too, for my winter semi-formal.  They were just a pair of pink ballet flats, that I got for 10$ at Old Navy.

OH MY!! those are amazing! i love them...ballet flats are my all time favorite thanks for posting!

ok, so the day after seeing this, i tried making a pair in green. when i went to payless they had one pair left in the kids sizes in pink and they fit and then they were also on sale so i was super pumped  Cheesy..anyways i painted mine green to begin with, then applied E6000 and the glitter, and then gave em two coats of clear acrylic sealant.  i've worn them like 3 times now and they're holding up really well..

someone said to me "umm.. i think the shoes are suppose to be ruby and the city is suppose to be emerald, so where do those take you?" me:"ruby city, duh"  Smiley

anyways, great project, super easy, thank you mortimer_frog!

I just wanted to show off my results a bit. Smiley

I ended up using SOOO much glitter on them.. like 6 coats to get them covered as well as I did.

I used Aileenes (sp!) fabric glue (it dries completely clear and is flexible) and I'd just paint on a layer, sprinkle the glitter on it, then press it in, let it dry for a day, then repeat, then after the last layer of glitter, I just put on one last layer of glue and let it dry.

Honestly they didn't shed as much as I expected.. and after a good shake outside I had no problems with a glitter trail.

I have to tell you, out in the sunlight, these things are amazing.

Thank you so much for the inspiration!

[eta- just for the record, these were an olllld pair of chucks, and I got some "real" shoe laces.. cleaned up the glue spots on the toes, and scraped the glitter off the lace holes. they look a bit neater now Smiley ]

7  my ruby red dorthy shoes in Shoes: Completed Projects by mortimer_frog on: September 18, 2005 11:46:11 AM
so i found this pair of rocketdog shoes i REALLY wanted that were just like the ruby red slippers from the wizard of OZ  but they were like 44 dollers...so i decided to make my own!
feedback is appriciated!

before...only mine were pink....

after...the glitter looks think because i put extra on while they were drying so it could afford to have some knocked off when i wore them,...

my inspiration...
