Refashioned Shoes

These are my favourite work shoes; they are flat and black but with a bit of sparkle from the gems. They go with everything. Unfortunately the other day I lost of of the gems:

I hunted around for a replacement but could not find anything suitable so I decided to refashion. Firstly I took of the gem part:

I then made a new fabric attachment. I stuck with the back theme so the shoes will continue to g with everything but added in a little white embellishment for detail:

Firstly I cut out two rectangles, from black wool fabric, for each shoe. I then sew the rectangles together, sew on the buttons in the centre and then attached the lace detail. Final I used fabric glue to attach them to the shoes:

My shoes now have a new lease of life but continue to be nice and practical for work.
