Well it taes a little less crazy when they are $10 fakes rather than the real thing.

I was a bit sad to cut them up cause they were actually a present but I was never wearing them anyway so I felt I was doing the presentt more justice by making it wearable!

They're fantastic! Ooooh! The inspiration! I love mary janes, but don't wear leather, so something similar to your fab shoes would be utterly awesome! Time to have a play!

Those are wonderful! I love them.

On the topic of stretchy lace, I always cut off various useable lengths of bra straps and other bits before throwing the bra away. When my bras inevitably go that mucky grey colour from being washed with something else, the lacy straps tend to stay to original colour, as they don't contain any cotton.
So, now I know what I've been saving 7 inch lengths of bra strap for  Roll Eyes, recon shoes! Thanks!

Thats an awesome idea! I don't have any lacy brastraps (no idea why), but I'll keep that in mind next time I go bra shopping.
