What are you most proud of? Even though I made the mistake of not prepping the shoes, I kept going and they came out fine. I got a compliment the very first time I wore them!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely check to see if the shoe color shoes through when your fabric is wet. The glue said it would dry with a "wet" look; what I didn't realize is that meant with my fabric that I should have painted the shoes first. Other than that, have fun! This is a great project to do in between all those couture-ish things that require exact concentration and attention to detail.

I love to see you wear all of them together! I can see that you have a lot of fun. Thank you for sharing.
