Use all of the shoes in your household to make something, or work on a single pair of shoes that were destined for the thrift store.
Ok, these weren't really destined for the thrift store but I had tons of them I had purchased to make scrapbook albums. This is the first pair I made, the directions came from a post on Pinrest.
I don't like how they came out and may do another pair with just the straps done and not all the center stuff.. Way to much stuff for my liking.
Here is another pair I put together also. This using twine and ribbon flowers. Still this is a work in progress for me.. Not sure I like these eighter but Christine does.
