Before we sew our cuff together, weâ€™re going to add a bit of embroidery! Iâ€™m going to add a small fleur de lis to the middle of my cuff that will face outwards. Now, to embroider on stretchy, chunky knit takes a few special steps. Youâ€™ll need a layer of cutaway stabilizer under your knit, then the knit fabric, and then a layer of water-soluble stabilizer on top. The top layer of stabilizer will keep the stitches from sinking into the knit.
I’ve been staring at these booties for a while, ever since Cher sent me the link to them, trying to decide if I wanted to attempt to make my own or not. I caved. I used a pair of lavender wedges I had, because they’re totally badass (haha). You will need: Shoes with a wedges/platform that can be penetrated by the thumbtacks (mine was rubber) Thumbtacks (I used about 1,000) Optional: Hammer (if your soles are harder) Gloves (I suggest these because your fingers will get TIRED and these will help protect them) Fabric glue (this probably shouldn’t be optional) I started with one shoe, in the very front.
Here is my first DIY post in the Feet category and I have to say I am pretty proud. I have called them my Walk of Fame Wedges , for obvious reasons, and love the way they shine even in day light ! The blue goes with a lot of my clothes and easily suits denim slims. It is also particularly in this summer so I will definitely be getting some use out of these beauties ! They’re high but easy enough to walk in so I will be showing them around London ASAP. To make your own Walk of Fame Wedges YOU WILL NEED :
When Target approached me about a Converse One Star DIY challenge I couldn't resist, but it wasn't until I saw these Miu Miu glitter sneakers that I had any clue how I was going to give my white sneaks a personality all their own. DIYers have been glueing glitter to their shoes for decades! The most challenging part of this DIY was figuring out what material I was going to use to create the steel toe. I was thrilled to find the little pyramid studs in my own craft closet to complete the look.
