Monday Made It!!

Hello folks!  Well I have been anxiously waiting to post this!  I am in the middle of making a couple things for school, and will update this when they're done.  However, I did finish one project at home... SHOES!  As I'm sure we all saw on Pinterest, I made the Old Navy shoes with fabric.  I went out shopping with my ex-sister-in-law and we went to Old Navy for the sole purpose (hahaha get it?!) of getting shoes to do this project.  Then we went to JoAnn's and got 1 yd of fabric to share.  It was plenty!  These shoes right here cost me $2.50 (She bought the fabric, but it was only $3.something)

Stay tuned for my First Day in 1st Grade picture frame!  I also bought a toolbox to make a teacher's toolbox, but I might wait to see what I have at school before I label it.



  1. Those are very cute!

    You are very talented in so many different ways...just a wee bit jealous over here. Lol! =)

    1. Awe, thanks! I'm not really talented. Just really really stubborn. When I decide I'm going to do something, it gets done. Somehow. For instance, I decided last night that I wanted to put a mini book on TpT for getting to know the people in the school (principal, nurse, etc). Well, I have EVERYTHING done except I wanted to make the cover cute with clip art of kids and a school. Do you know how hard it is to find black and white (because it will be copied) clip art of school stuff? I love scrappindoodles, but you can't sell on TpT with their stuff. So... the point... I'm so stinkin' stubborn that I might have to make it myself! haha


  2. Wow did those turn out cute!!! Thanks for linking them up! Can't wait to see your other things;)

    1. I pinned it here There aren't word directions, but the pictures are all you need. We got 1yd and cut it in half. Then you take that piece of fabric, and cut it into 4 strips. You need to cut it long-ways. I cut mine about 2ish inches wide. Then cut off the straps that are already on it. Cut the ends of the fabric like a point to make it easier. Then put TWO pieces of fabric through the toe hole and tie a knot. Not like shoes, but take both pieces together, and wrap around to make a knot. Tip: try to make the knot close to the end of the fabric so you don't waste any. Mine were almost too short. Then you are going to make 2 knots on top of the shoe (again, not like shoelaces... that knot has to have a name!). Take each piece and slip through the side holes, knot underneath. Then hot glue the knots into the little holes. Voila! It totally made sense while I was typing it, but I'm sure it's clear as mud. haha I am going to make another pair (2/$5 at ON!), and I'll do a photo step-by-step with word directions with it if this doesn't help. :)

    2. Another tip: Wear them around the house before you glue so that you know if you need to tighten or loosen the side knots. I actually wore mine all day today through all my errands and haven't glued them yet haha.
