"Patchwork" Shoe

NO, I didn't piece all those little squares in the shoe. That part is whole cloth.

Tiny sequins decorate the top of the box. Each sequin was dipped into glue. I used curved tweezers to grasp and place them. There are five tiny stitches through the fabric and tulle around each one to keep them from migrating too far if the glue lets loose.

I just love these shoes. They are so bright and fun. I'm going to have to make a pattern and get some of them made, too. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love these! Bright and fun is a perfect description, but also they're clever and interesting to think about.

Love all your quilted shoes. They are best to look at not walk in at that height of heel.
