Fairy Shoes

Well here they are, my all handsewen fairy shoes.I pictured them with the leaf to show thier size, but I bent the leaf... so it looks smaller than the shoes. They are about 4 1/2 inches long.
Anyway____ first I dotted some red felt with gold paint, then I hand sewed diagonally with gold metalic thread. "Nasty job"- I cut black felt and sewed the soles and uppers together, then the part that took the longest, was sewing the uppers to the soles and the shoe opening.
Next time I am glueing.
OK ,OK, I'm kidding.
where was I? Oh yeah, I then found these really tiny bells and attached them to the toes and added the ribbon and beads to top. ALLLLLLL done WHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Tonniece,
All the faeries at my house wanted me to tell you that these shoes are absolutely beautiful. If they did not feel some sort of loyalty to me, they would have flown straight to you in a second. :)

Hi Luci

Well I am happy that you like these. I feel quite proud of them, if I do say myself. These were lots of fun creating. After 3, and I do mean THREE attempts at it, I finally got them done.

As for the shoes at your house,, CAN'T THEY JUST VISIT? LOL

Have a great day
Tonniece
