PRETTY SHOES

I love shoes!!
I really don't love shoes, I love handmade shoes.
A few weeks ago I joined a fairy shoe swap at Bliss Angels.
I was then assigned my swap partner, Marsha. You can visit Marsha at Sassy Mini Dolls
Here is the shoe Marsha created for me, I just love it!!
Notice the little fairy girl, she is sitting so pretty on the back of the shoe.
Marsha also included a pouch of lavender, so nice.
Do you notice the ballerina doll?
I love the shoe but I really love the pink bird, have I ever mentioned I love birds?? ;)
Thank you again, MarshaThis is the shoe I created for Marsha.
Using a tutorial from Artful Affirmations
I created this shoe using card stock paper as the form and then covering with sheet music on the bottom, vintage wallpaper on the top, and a linen dinner napkin on the inside. I glued vintage trim around the edges.
I also created a tag for Marsha.
Using the same vintage wallpaper as the background. The woman is a cutout from a sewing pattern. I finished off the tag with vintage wedding gown trims, lightly colored with pastel paints.
I tucked into the shoe some lace and trims and pink picks. I included some sheer lace and trims on the top of the shoe.
This is the bottom.
Inside.
This was such a fun swap.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hello!! I love the shoe you created for me! I have it displayed next to my Bloggerette Sorority rush project!!

I am so glad you like what I created for you. I knew you loved birds and I had intended on making a nest inside the shoe with some birds but as often happens with me my creativity took me in a different direction but I still wanted to make sure there was a bird on the shoe for you!!

Thank you for being such a wonderful swap partner!!!
