Frangipani Shoes

Last week I saw this very nice idea of crochet espadrilles for babies and I thought 'Why not make those for me, myself and I?!'.
With making the espadrilles I could combine three things that I wanted to do for quite some time, namely 1) buy espadrille-like wedges with flowers, 2) use two frangipani flowers that used to be hairclips but somehow broke loose from the clip and I saved for whenever I would get idea where to use them for and 3) make me a pair of shoes. 

This is how they turned out:
And it's not a lot of work either, you can make them in just a couple of hours. For the bottom I bought cheap wedges and cut off the cheap fake suede fabric, but maybe you can buy heels-without-shoes somewhere around.

This is what the shoes looked like before their make over.

  1. I love your shoes makeover! They are stunning!

  2. That is fabulously cool!!! I love the vivid colours tempered by soft, sandy beige. That palette sings with the spirit of summer and is wonderfully feminine, to boot. Awesome work on your new shoes, dear gal!
