I’m not sure whether it took knowing that I was going to be a grandma to a little girl or having a couple of successful Pinterest projects under my belt to find out I kinda like this craft thing. The two things happened about the same time.
I couldn’t be happier with the way this latest project turned out.
I was wandering through Gordman’s trying to kill time and I found a pair of pink Chuck Taylor crib shoes.
I bought them. Then I got the rest of the pieces I needed to complete the project.
I started out by applying 5mm AB crystals to the toes.
And to the middle of the star on the side of the shoes.
Then I replaced the laces with ribbon.
I measured the ribbon against the lace but it turned out not to be long enough.
So I cut the ribbon the length of the lace and then half again. This gave me enough room to trim off the edges and make a nice big bow. I finished off by coating the ends of the ribbon with clear nail polish so they won’t fray.
Are these not the CUTEST shoes ever! I can’t wait to see Aniston wear them and to make another pair.
