DIY Project: Pretty Pretty Shoes

I saw this DIY project and just had to share it with you lovely ladies!  The project comes courtesy of Green Wedding Shoes, and they're oh so easy to make.

You will need:
Comfortable, pretty shoes with a narrow 'middle part' in the front
Nylon fishing line
One yard of silk chiffon fabric (any color will do!)

Cut two pieces of fabric, 15″ x 13″ in length. Now fold the fabric in an accordion style, leaving you with a 15" long folded piece of fabric.

Take the fabric and tie a loose knot around the front of the shoe. This is why it’s important to use a shoe the has a narrow middle part in the front.

Next, cut four pieces of fishing line about 30″ long. Then push one side in so there is a nice small bump and wrap the fishing line around where my fingers are below. Tie in a knot on the underside so you won’t see it. Repeat the bump/wrapping process, working your way from the center of the shoe out to the side.

Do this on both sides of your knot and adjust fabric bumps to your liking.

Once you have the first shoe done, go ahead and repeat on your second shoe. Once you have your shoes done, trim the ends so they match each other in length.

And there you go! Pretty shoes for your wedding day – easy to create and if you get tired of them, you can easily take off the fabric and use a different fabric!
