DIY: Simple Shoe Upgrade #1

I've been thinking about easy ways to revamp some of the shoes I already have and decided to do a series of simple shoe upgrade DIYs!








MATERIALS: 
  • T-Strap Heels
  • 2 Beaded Motifs
  • Needle & Thread
  • Scissors
  • Elastic 


STEP ONE:

Cut four lengths of elastic that loop tightly around your shoe strap.  



STEP TWO:

Sew each of the loops closed.



STEP THREE:

Sew two loops to the back of each motif along the centre line. If your motifs are larger, you may need 3 elastic loops for each motif.


STEP FOUR:

Thread the T strap of the shoe through the elastic loops.

























STEP FIVE:

Voila! Finito! Best thing is they are detachable!


ADDITIONAL NOTE:

You really need a pair of T-strap heels with a detachable ankle strap for this to work as I've shown here. But another option is to attach the motifs to ankle straps of a pair of shoes.
