The other day it was warm here in Chicago. This was a HUGE accomplishment for the city because Summer keeps coming for a day and then Winter decides to come back for a few days! This game is getting very old, Mother Nature. Very old.
When it was Summer, everyone was sporting their new sandals. People get so exciting to show-off their new seasonal gear, especially when we transition from Spring to Summer. I hopped right on this bandwagon and bought myself a pair of summery sandals from Forever 21. The sandals were a simple strappy sandal in a metallic silver color. I saw my sandals as a blank canvas and decided to give them a little makeover. They just felt too plain for me!
I ended up adding a pop of color to my sandals with some embroidery floss. I decided on a design and created a template. Then, I used my leather punch to add holes to my straps, making it SUPER easy to stitch them with my floss. You can add whatever design you fancy with a leather punch. Just dream up a design and punch it out!
Have you ever altered a pair of shoes before? What did you do?
