Here is a shoe that I haven’t worn in a long time.  I don’t like the color, and I really don’t like the buckle. So, I chose to cover them with some fabric that I already had, and add some ruffles.


Instructions to make these can be found here.

I decided to start craft projects because of zipper rosettes. They are so easy to make, and look so rad!  I’ve noticed lots of shoes and accessories with zippers, so I couldn’t wait to give it a try.

I picked up some back canvas flats from Payless for $12.  Removed the bows (I’m saving those for something) and attached the zippers.

I’m in love with my new shoes! Especially since they cost me only $17.

I’ve saved the best for last. I picked up this T at Target for $9.  Added rosettes for $2:

My J-Crew inspired T took me about 2 hours.  There is definitely a learning curve when you make these for the first time. 🙂
