A Step-by-Step Guide to Making Your Footwear Fabulous

One size does not fit all. For diva-licious footwear as unique as you, step into Altered Shoes and be your own designer! Whether you're working with new shoes or a pair you've worn-in just right, this book shows you how to add your own personal stamp. (Or rhinestones, or ribbons, or gilding?)

Dig those castaways out of your closet - those Plain Janes, those old favorites with scuffed-up soles, and those pricey bridesmaid shoes that saw their day and have been in the box ever since. Add sparkle to your stilettos, revive your favorite flats and personalize your pumps. Use the same techniques to turn new, off-the-rack bargains, into out-of-this-world creations, the kind of shoes that don't just complement your outfit, but punctuate it!

Stroll through these pages and discover:

20 inventive projects for taking shoes from tired and boring to fresh and fabulous - from Viva Las Vegas Stilettos to Flower Power Pumps! Easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions for a wide range of techniques using fabric, paint, polymer clay, crystals, seashells, deconstructed jewelry, fabric markers - even a photo of the family pet? Head over heels - love letters in which women of all walks of life reflect upon their favorite pair of shoes

No more predictable and pedestrian shoes for you, Twinkle Toes! Get this book and treat your feet to designer originals - MINUS the designer price tag.
