I sew in high heels...

I had never heard of those shoes but as soon as I saw your post I wanted some.  I went out and bought some supplies to start this.  I had a question:  Is the glue still holding together?

I was going to try this with the same kind of shoe from payless. $12.00! woot! Thought if it worked I would try some high heels that have a thick enough sole.  Also has anyone tried doing this on a cork sole? 

Yeah, the glue is still holding up....but I used E6000 Which is the most hardcore glue I've ever seen. I just guled rhinestones to the toe of my converse with it and none fell off even after a loooooong trip to the zoo. I hate a pair before and I needed to take the stones off and I had to tug them off......it will hold.

Oh. My. Gawd.

I adore these.
Usually I'm not one for sandals and things that show my ugly toes, but I have a super-soft-spot for lace-up-type shoes [like, around your ankle style].
Plus I almost never wear wedges.

But I love these, thank you.
I might have to ponder it and see if I can't make similar shoes more fitted to my stylings and wardrobe..

I followed your great tutorial and I was really ecstatic about the results.  They looked perfect. I just got done making them day before yesterday and I left them to dry.  I tried them on this morning and I thought I made the elastic tight enough. Oh no!   It's not!  The elastic loops stretch out an inch up over my foot.  No matter how I tie them they slide off.   Cry I'm taking a break and then I'll try to rip the tacks out and try again.  If I can get the tacks out that is.

I was trying to remember where this thread was...

The current issue of Craft: has an article with the Mohop ppl doing a thong type shoe.

OH MY GOSH! I KNOW! I picked up this issue of Craft: and I saw that and I felt a little hurt inside. I was pissed the other day when I went into target and I saw them selling bags that were the ironed target bags to create a whole new reusable bag........which was the winner of the reusable bag contest a few months back....and there was another that was right off the pages of craftster that I can't remember. Everyone's stealing our brilliant ideas! Blast!

Drives me crazy!!  I wonder if the "other bag" that you saw referenced was mine... I entered my original "neither paper nor plastic" bag (made from fabric...) last year and have recently been seeing "neither paper nor plastic" fabric bags at Wal-Mart.  It takes a lot to get me mad, and I've come really close seeing those bags everywhere.   Angry 
On a happier note, though, your tutorial is AMAZING- thank you so much!!!  I'm mid-process with my shoes- have the placement of the tacks and am ready to put in the elastic (which I will stretch *really* tightly now).  Will post a pic when they're done.
I'd also never heard of Mohop until now... but I'm sure one of my friends has, sure she'd go crazy for a pair, and I can't wait to show her my Faux-hops when they're done!  She thinks I'm cheap- the look on her face will be priceless LOL.   Grin

Wow your shoes are fabulous and thanks so much for the great tutorial. I am now in the process of gathering my supplies.

I finished my shoes!  I popped out the middle tacks before the glue set.  I tightened the elastic and then popped off one on the ends and pulled out the extra. I used Stretchrite Round Cord Elastic.  That was the only one my Joann's had.  Here are pictures.

*Ignore my ghostly legs. Man I need a tan. * And here is my DS admiring his new shoe.  Disregard the green flip flop.

That is the second ribbon i had to buy because i forgot to get double faced satin so it wouldn't look funky.  Now all I have to do is use some goo gone where the shoe tag was and it will be done.

WOW! So many different ways to wear shoes Tongue Great idea

« Reply #59 on: June 12, 2008 09:32:08 AM »

Finished mine!   Grin  Ignore the bright pink toenail "polish"... and the other places where I forgot to paint over my paint-chipping toenails:

I think I actually strung my elastic too tightly- I used black oval cord (instead of round cord... which I will be using on my next pair) and pulled it as tight as I could, and as a result I have to use the flat end of a metal spoon to push the ribbons through.  On the pair that's mismatched, those are indeed belts- very comfy, but not exactly my look.
Thank you so much for the wonderful idea and tut!!!
