After um-ing and ahh-ing about making my own ruby slippers for quite some time, I took the plunge after seeing these lovely replicas:

So I promptly went out and bought the shoes (black leather pumps, I wasn't going for exact replicas but I did want the thick heel), 10 metres of sequins and a bottle of fabric/leather glue.

However, once I finished one shoe and the heel of the other, I found that 10 metres was NOT enough!!
So I had to go all the way back to the shop and get 7 more metres - It didn't help that the shops with the cheapest sequins didn't have red Sad

All in all, they took me about 3 days but only about 2-3 hours each day.
On to the pictures!!

ETA: Here's a HQ picture if anyone wanted to see a closeup.

My eyes bugged out when I saw the picture of the completed shoe.  You really did a fantastic job on these!  I know I would find myself staring at my feet all of the time. 

Oh, just think of the compliments you'll receive when wearing these.   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

These are flippin' FANTASTIC!!!!!!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
