I made these shoes quite a while back. Originally I had intended to make them as part of a project to get on a 'Design Team'. It was a little 'tongue-in-cheek', I hadn't been terribly serious about it. I have to thank my friend DeAnna from Paper Grandma for showing me this cutting file and also spending a lot of time over the phone helping me cut them with the MTC programme.
I finished the basic shoe, and kind of just left them on the shelf (literally). I was looking at the the other day and thinking of my oldest daughter and her fascination with designer shoes (no doubt helped by her father who always 'notices' shoes.) I should mention here that her fascination is purely in her head, as she is a 'poor hard-up student.'
Well, I started to 'bling' them out a bit and here is what I ended up with.
Red soles the signature of Christian Louboutin!
Soon these will be winging their way to Seattle filled with candy, and someone special will be dreaming of maybe one day owning the real thing.
