Ruffle Shoes For The Big Girls

Remember how I wanted some ruffles on my shoes?
Well did you know that Joann's now has zipper trim?  Its in their trims under project runway stuff.  Now I don't think this is necessarily cheaper than buying a zipper for small projects.  But if you want a good length of it and you use a coupon its probably pretty smart.
And did you also know that Target had their flats on sale this week?!
I started with a yard of zipper trim.  I cut it in half and ruffled each piece with a long stitch.  (I prefer to do it by hand with zippers since they ruffle up kind of crazy.)  
 Then just like Ivy's shoes I hotglued it straight to my new shoes.   I  glued a row farther away from the edge and then doubled back closer to the my foot. 
The ends were a little long so instead of trimming I added a little roll.  And some bling just for fun.
Now I have some stylin' new shoes for $12.  And I get to wear them on my date tonight!
UPDATE!  Those shoes are normally only $12.99 so they are still a sweet deal!
(and don't worry Shell, I got your back.  Just try and act surprised on your birthday!)
