Here's another part of my sparse DIY series. ( for the time being a total of three including this entry, how pathetic you say?).. Yet alas I failed miserably attempting this project. Yes, just like this one..But anyway I hope you're somewhat inspired to create your own DIY thing, and share with me if you have some interesting results :)
Michelle Obama sometime ago (can I say one year "sometime ago" ?). But as you can tell I won't justify forking out almost $600 for a pair of sneakers, so a DIY version just seems right at the moment.
The idea was to simply replace the original laces with some kind of ribbon laces. Easy as ABC it may seem, unfortunately, I had this mistake of using such a thick and coarse fabric, so threading the laces through the tiny eyelets was hell and I almost broke my finger doing 12 pairs of eyelets! Not to mention some of the eyelets were starting to get loose due to my forceful traction. (Mental note: next time, in case I wanted to repeat this project, use satin laces instead). Ezzra , who watched me all the way completing this painstaking work suggested tying the ends of ribbons into bow. Whoa even I did not see that coming... Good job Ezzra, next maybe you can be my assistant styling my outfits for this blog? Joking!
he/she/it said... buy an exact similar pair of sneakers, patent cap toes and all, take a deep breath and attempt to redo this failed project. Hmmm.... let me think....
It seems that I don't have the heart anymore to venture further into this project..here came the scissors and I snipped off the laces, replaced them with the original ones and sold them to a junior for a dirt cheap bargainer's price. There you go!
burning holes on the previous shirt?
