Don’tcha love it when the (oh-so-simple) solution to potentially awesome yet unworn gear you’ve had for ages suddenly smacks you right in the middle of your refashionista brain?
So it was with my groovtastic crocheted sandals:
Before their transformation these beauties were such torture on my tender tootsies they were banished to the storage room for nearly 4 years!
Here’s how I (finally) revamped them into my fancy oh-so-comfortable summer slip-ons…
I freed the adorable but insanely ouchie sandals from their storage room prison
chopped off all of the foot offending straps
gave the edges a coat of brown acrylic paint, firmly rubbing it into the fabric & cork with a small rag
crocheted a loooong chain of ruffle-y yarn
glued the crocheted chain onto the fabric of the toe piece on each sandal
and my stupendous sandals were ready for action!
