DIY FRIDAY #2: Easter Bowed Heels


I've been meaning to revamp these black wedges, which originally were for work but now that I don't wear heels to work I can add some spunk to them:)

1) choose a fabric, I recommend either lace or satin, keep in mind the outfits you will wear with them
2) I would normally just sew the rectangle on a machine, but since the sewing lab is closed for Good Friday I hand sewed the rectangle leaving a gap to turn out the rectangle, make a template so your bows are the same size
3) after sewing shut the rectangle, sew a strip in the centre completing the bow
4) I recommend glue gunning the bow to the shoe heel but I actually hand sewed it, this is very tricky as pleather/ suede/ whatever the shoe is made of is really stiff, if you decide to sew it, make sure you use a thimble! (sewing also allows you to easily remove the bow later on)

I added some flat pearls as an after thought. Happy Easter!!
