Shoe Redo

I love cute shoes. I must have inherited that from my mother (apparently Abby has the shoe gene too). I've been wanting a pair of metallic flats to go with jeans and skirts but did not want to flip the bill right now. I decided to take an old, well-loved pair of shoes and turn them into a new set. It was a ton of fun. I'm going to try to repurpose or "update" something every week this month. Last week was Bryan's old polo. This week we are starting off with these shoes. Next week? Stay tuned...



Demonstrating with my favorite pair of worn jeans.

Yay! Mission finished.

Repurposing Fun

Bryan's favorite polo shirt was recently ruined by ink stains. Feeling crafty and inspired by a photo I had seen on a sewing blog, I decided to try to turn his old polo into a cute dress for Abby. I'm pretty pleased with the results. It's not master craftsmanship, but it works just fine for a flirty toddler outfit. It's my first project besides burp cloths to try by myself. I think I am hooked. I'll be sewing again soon. I had a ton of fun!
