Wooow Margie ! Congrats, you made a beautiful work !!! How did you manage to sew these shoes ? Have you a magic needle that can pierce such a thick canvas and sew inside at the bottom of the shoe ? Unless it was Arwen who helped you with his claws ? That Liberty fabric basket was so tempting ...

Glad you made something for you, for once ! It would be perfect in Lisa's new group "Crafting for ourselves" ( http://www.flickr.com/groups/craftingforourselves/ ) !

Thanks for sharing views of your pretty backyard garden. I'm happy you enjoyed such a sunny and relaxing Sunday with your family. It looked almost warmer than here !

Happy Monday, Margie, hoping Mister Sun will stay at you the whole week ...


I love your shoes!! We had LOTS of rain yesterday and I counted 110 snails........lots of weenie babies:)


I can only imagine how sore yout fingers must be from sewing though that canvas. Did you use pliers to pull it through. the shoes looks absolutely lovely.

Margie, what a great idea. They look wonderful. You are such a talent, girl!


The shoes look lovely!You are so great in finding ways to use scraps of cloth!These would cost a fortune to buy them!Ariadne from Greece!


Those are a beautiful pair of shoes ~ art, really. How happy you and your feet will be!

I think you could shave that name tag off the heel if it's raised. Or sandpaper might work?


hey those are amazing! i admire your stitching- i tried to patchwork on shoes once and my needle kept breaking. i love the bits of liberty and lace you used.

Lovely World

Fantastic idea. Happy feet.

What a gorgeous garden ... and cats, and notions ...
How proud these shoes must be to be dressed in Tana Lawn and crocheted flowers !

i agree, shave the name off the heels! i would have used 'goop' the glue to attach things, because sometimes i like to speed through a project. love the small snail...wish i could love slugs...


I love the sneakers!

Israel seems to take this route every few years to do (I think) the same thing. Start a war with someone weak and get your military trained at best conditions.
