Adding Some Dazzle to an Old Pair of Shoes

Hello everyone!  Is it fall yet?  Because out here in California it is still 90 degrees almost all week and I could really use a rainy cold day.  Wouldn’t that be nice?????

Well, this weeks blog was an experiment for a present for a friend of mine.  I wanted to try this on something that I had before I put I worked on something and I didn’t like how it turned out.

So, I want to bedazzle a pair of shoes for my friend, but wanted to bedazzle a pair of my own shoes to see if I liked it or not.  My supplies included a pair of shoes that I drew on, Jolee’s Boutique scrapbook embellishments, and fabric glue.

Now, I already had the design drawn on the shoes, so I didn’t have to worry about messing up.  But, I definitely suggest drawing on the shoes before doing anything else.  It makes your job 100 times easier.

And then I didn’t know what would be easier to put the black gems on.  If I put the glue on each gem individually, or if I smeared the glue on the shoe and then stuck the gems on.  So, here’s my verdict.  Putting glue on each gem individually makes the line nicer, but smearing the glue on the shoe is much faster.

So it’s up to you what you what you want to do!  The picture on the left is glue on each gem and the picture on the right is the glue smeared on.  Don’t worry, the glue dries on clear.

And after you spend however long sticking your gems on the shoes, you will have a completed look!  Whatever you decide to put on your shoes, or whatever you decide to bedazzle, it will look awesome!

I love how the turned out!  Obviously, the glue hadn’t completely dried in the picture, but it did dry completely clear and they look awesome!  I am happy with how it looks and cannot wait to compete the project for my friends present!
