This is a great little thing to do to plain flats. Or plain pumps. Best with nothing on the toe already. You can also add the ribbons to the outside of the shoe instead of the inside for a "wrap around" look. I'd use hot glue if you decided to do that instead.
And okay, I just have to mention this. I'm totally enjoying the #altsummit twitter stream. It has some great advice and discussions but I have to admit it's really bittersweet. I'd love to be there. I'm going to try to save up for next year. It's something that I really want to do.
And in case you are interested I'm starting to post on my home/design blog The Tumtum Tree again.
These are just too clever!
I need to figure out a way to make me one of these!
1. Cut a yard and a half of wide ribbon. Cut that in half. Then cut in half again. You should now have four lengths of ribbon.
If you are sewing, put on the shoe and pin ribbon to shoe where you want it be on the top of your foot.
