Shoe Makeover

See these sad, worn out looking shoes?
They've been working really hard lately so they definitely deserve a makeover.
I traced a heart shape onto two pieces of red felt, cut them out,
and then sewed them together.
I cleaned up my shoes, gave them a well deserved back massage, and then glued on the hearts.
After
Now they look brand new,

 and extra cute!

I just wanted to take some time to leave a little love - your blog posts always make my day and I'm certain that whenever it will be that I'll move out of my parents' house, I'll decorate my new apartment with colors and even more colors. Thank you for being such an inspiration (=

Even though my tank is full of testosterone and I'm fitted with attire of 'machismo', I must say that your site always makes me 'gay'(in the happy sense:-), feel frivolous and carefree. You make my day, you're adorable and I wish I could put one of you in my jungle vest. Love your vision and your mind!

Did I sound too 'manly'?

K said...

Such an adorable little DIY! Well done :D So sweet, and that is one fantastic rug :O
