Granny to Gorgeous Shoe Craft!

I recently got a bunch of cheap flats from Walmart in a discount bin for a buck! The pair I am featuring today looked like grandma's curtains to me...but felt like they had potential.  So I added just a little something that I thought made a world of difference!...

From this...

 To this...

 What do you think? Maybe they're still kinda weird but I REALLY like 'em!

I didn't take pictures along the way like I should have. BUT! I can tell you what I did, it's very simple.

*Remember the ribbon earrings back during Earring Week? It's the same idea except for you do about twice the amount of ribbon in length to get it all bunched up.*

1. Run a thread through the side of about 14" of 1-1.5" thick ribbon.

2. Pull the thread so the ribbon is all scrunched together.

3. Sew on your flats!
