Thanks to my friend Melissa for hanging out with me Friday evening and inspiring me to have a totally "crafty weekend"! We had a great time playing in the studio and making artsy stuff, including a bracelet made out of old buttons. Now this got me to thinking about other things I could make and stuff I could recycle...............Hmmmm, well on Saturday I came across an unattractive old pair of shoes in my closet and knew right away that I could give them new life as a classy & kinda funky pair of attention grabbers. No trash can or charity bin for these guys.....nope, they got a complete makeover and now I've fallen in love with them. Check it out.
The completed pair.
I used samples of upholstry fabric and some of my grandma's old buttons.
And this is what they looked like before. What do you think?
