When I saw these beauties in Anthropologie, I fell in love! Then, I saw the price. $98. For some sandals?! I understand paying money for a good pair of shoes...but seriously?
Unfortunately, I couldn't stop thinking how much I needed them. So, I decided to make some of my own.
1/4 yard of blue seersucker from my friendly JoAnn's
1 sheet of felt
2 pins from the HobLob
Needle and thread
Good ol' E6000
Doo-dads from old costume jewelry
a pair of sandals from Old Navy for a much cooler $20!
I put my flowers on pins instead of directly onto the shoes. This way I can put them on a sweater, t-shirt, purse...whatever! The first thing I did was cut out two felt circles about a inch in diameter each. Next, I cut out eight pieces of seersucker (1 1/2" by 4"). To make my seersucker less floppy-for lack of a better word- I starched my strips. I arranged four in an asterisk pattern and put my felt circle on top. I used my needle and thread to sew them onto my pin. Repeat with your other four pieces and felt circle. Once that was super duper secure, I put some E6000 under my felt circle to attach it even more to my seersucker scraps. Finally, I picked out a few doo-dads from my Grandma Irene's costume jewelry. Those were stuck on top with some E6000 as well.
Here's my version of these Anthro's super cute, super expensive sandals:
I LOVE THEM!
