Was in some serious DIY mood one afternoon after the Christmas Holidays - it lead me to making these Shoe Accessories. When you have Tweed Fabric, Scrap Leather from an old Belt and Gold Chain.... in my world - the skies the limit.
Enjoy the first DIY on the Blog - but defiantly not the last.... My whole life I have been DIY'ing I just normally dont take photos of my every step. Since this year, I'm all about dreaming and do'ing vs dreaming and dreaming - I got a quick start on my lazy resolution.
PS: My take on DIY is a bit different as my ideas change quite a bit on the process so what I start out doing is never what the final product looks like - so bare with the change of plans as the photos go on. For the most part I hope you can get inspiration from what I do - Im not very good and following rules.
Take your Stiff Ribbon and Glue/Reserve Sticky inside your Steed Material
Folding over the edges to form 1 long Stiff Tweed Strip
Cut into 2 even strips - the last time I looked you had 2 ankles and not 1
Now create 2 circles out of the strips you just created - these will now be pinched in the center and made into a bow
I pinched the center by taking a Thread and Needle weaving in and out about 4cm apart so I could just simply pull the bottom and crimp it all together - forming a bow.
I took scrap leather from an old belt and covered the sewing to form a center point
I be-dazzled it with some scrap gold chain and a little charm that I found at a Vintage Shop
I then cut two strips from the Leather and attached the centers to the backside of the Bows - this would be what I will tie around my ankles.
...and whala.... my Shoe Accessories!
I think they make a plain black pump - Fabulous!
