This is a pair of hand-sewn ruby slippers that I made, using the same materials and techniques used by MGM to make the original ruby slippers for Judy Garland as Dorothy to wear in The Wizard of Oz.

Thank you.

They are hard to make, and are certainly beautiful and high quality. Now in the possession of a private collector.

Thank you, it's a very tedious job that requires skill and patience because you're sewing nearly 5,000 sequins to cover the entire shoes.

I made this pair of ruby slipper bows, using high quality materials all hand-sewn with needle and thread like the originals in 1939.
