"Rock'n Roll" Shoes

I live with the "World's Greatest Elvis Fan". So of course I had to make a rock'n roll shoe featuring the King.
My husband tried to talk me out of the one I made for "Imelda's Dream" quilt. He was disappointed that I wouldn't let him have it until he opened his birthday present of this large one made especially for him.

Go to "Elvis Is Coming" to see Lee's Elvismobile and read about an exhibit of "some" of his collection in our local museum that celebrated Elvis's 70th birthday. That was the second museum exhibition featuring Lee's collection. The first was the Historical Museum in Holland, Michigan when it ran a series of exhibitions featuring folk art. Lee makes or embellishes a lot of Elvis stuff. It all has his "tongue in cheek" sense of humor. I'm not a big Elvis fan, but I love my husband's "zaniness" about the whole thing. He calls me his Elvis enabler

My gosh -- I just stumbled onto your site and spent the past 45 minutes goggle-eyed - you're amazing. The shoes are a real delight (that I want to do now!) and all of your quilts are inspired. WTG!

I think this is my favorite of the shoes -- so bright, so whimsical, just makes you smile!
