my friend wanted these red heels she saw on ebay for christmas... they had like beads sewn on them i guess... i dont really rember exactly  Undecided

i have red heels to make them, but i have no idea how i would go about sewing beads on a pair of shoes with out screwing up the outside of the show, and i have no idea how else i could attach them to the shoe

so if ANYONE has ANY ideas...

(i saw the shoes that are all glitter, and thats not really what im looking for at all)

I would sew the beads to some fabric, and then glue the fabric around the heel with strong glue. First, fit fabric around the heel in the exact shape you want, and cut it out. Now it's your pattern. Trace the pattern shape onto another, larger piece of fabric, bead within the shape, and then cut out and apply.

depends on teh size of the beads but you could try asking for a surgical needle. The hooked kind they use for stitches?
