Recently, while poking around blog land I have run into several pairs of fairy shoes … well you know me and fairies … I was instantly inspired! I wanted to try and make some but I wanted to be able to wear them too! I was also motivated by a stampers retreat that our local stamp group leader has planed for us. We plan to stay in our jammies all weekend and stamp, so I needed some pretty shoes to wear … right! Well I have a book on ribbon embroidery so I got out my sewing machine followed a pattern that I found also at the thrift shop. Although I do tat I did not do the tatted lace around the edges. That is some antique lace I collected a long time back.
