10 Minute Shoe Makeover

Who doesn't love a good clearance find?!?! I saw these pink flats and thought, 'these are too cute to be on clearance...what's wrong with them?' I couldn't find anything, they were perfect, except... for the size!


However, a good friends birthday was coming up and I needed the perfect accessory to pull the whole gift together... and they had her size. Score!

The theme to her gift was Black&White with a hint of pink. Therefore these already cute flats needed some B&W love...


What do you think? Better before? Or are you loving the B&W?!?!

How to make-over your shoes? Heres what I did...

Take a 6 inch by 36 inch piece of fabric and iron the edges inward.


Then iron the fabric in half.


Roll one end of the fabric and keep twisting the fabric around itself,
until you form a rosette to the size you need.



(I used hot glue along the way, to make sure they were nice and secure)

Next, I cut off the old pink rosettes and hot glued the new B&W rosettes on.


Voila! Super cute, one of a kind flats!
(And all under 10 minutes... can't beat that!)


I can not wait to show you the maternity shirts I have been working on to match these fun accessories! Check back soon to see all the fun we have here at TB2C!!!
