As an aware woman with an admitted shoe obsession, I have taken the next step and have been wanting to learn to make my own shoes. Can you imagine the possibilities??? A shoe lover who knows how to make my own shoes??? There wouldn't be enough closet space in the world :o) Maybe it's a good thing that I cant find a class near me.
The next best thing is learning how to upcycle a pair of already made shoes to look like a pair of brand new designer shoes. I found a tutorial that I want to share with everyone that instructs us on just that, recreating a pair of Miu Miu heels for our own DIY closets!!! Honestly WTF has been so amazing in sharing the How-To for this amazing project and you can link to the site here or you can check out my re-post below and start working on your shoes immediately! Good luck Pulling these amazing DIY upcycled shoes Together!
(BTW, I have the golden yellow sling backs with the jeweled heels on her site, and if I though of how to do this before purchasing, I would have saved enough money to buy a ton more shoes to DIY. But I love those jewel-y shoes so it's all good!)
- a pair of heeled shoes
