Welcome back dear readers to another edition of your one and only Craftcorners blog, where we’re absolutely devoted to providing you with the tools and ideas necessary to make your very own stuff. Yes stuff, from the beautiful, to the useful, to the fun and every conceivable combination therein, we just can’t get enough of the countless creative projects available to each and every one of us. Today we’re embarking on yet another fashion extravaganza – that’s right, time again for our favorite category of crafts – those you can wear! Today we’re going to be making a complimentary set of goods – a pair of shoes and purse that you’ll be able to wear out and match together. Well, let’s get right to it!
What You’ll Need
- One pair of fantastic black heels you plan to decorate.
- A simple cloth or nylon black purse or handbag.
- Black petals. These can be hard to obtain individually, but you can often find a cloth of black petals. All you’ll need to do is cut them apart with a fiskars paper cutter.
- Fabric adhesive.
What To Do
You’ll want to start off by giving your purse and shoes a proper cleaning – this will make the application and decoration stage much easier later on. You can do this with simple soap and water – ensure that they’ve dried off sufficiently before decorating. Next you’ll want to coat the shoes and purse with fabric adhesive – a light coat should be more than enough. Go ahead and apply your petals – the tops of the shoes are a good place, as are the sides of your purse. You don’t want to overdo it because it will just look sloppy, but don’t be too stingy either. You can complete this simple and elegant look with an always sisters forever friends ring.
