happy monday!!!

day three of it actually feeling like spring! We have our local school rummage this next saturday and the garage is filling up with goodies to go....woo hooo...so happy to be passing on treasures...to others!

I finished the baby fairy shoe.... i ended up putting in a pincushion into the body of the shoe and covering it with the softest pale pink fabric! Thinking this could be used for a display for pretty hatpins...(some of mine are trying it out in the pictures!) or this could be for a baby princess nursery for diaper pins...(heck even if you use disposables! lol) or just for that pink sewing room for regular pins!!! I added some soft pink silk leaves for wings and covered the underneath part of the leaves with pink matte and irridescient glitter...and i rimmed the top of the shoe with the same glitter...but there was that space around the pincushion that was just a void that i wanted to fill! so i filled the space with over 50 vintage glass rhinestones! some as big as 3/8"! very sparkly and regal! i also added some rhinestones to the back of the fairy and to her tiara!...the shoe is laced with vintage pink seam binding and i added some pink roses also embellished with rhinestones!







have a great day!!!!

Barb!
This is precious! Did you make the fairy, too?
These don't even have to have a function, people would display them on a nursery shelf or hang them on the wall with ribbons. Adorable!
Hugs,

I just adore the shoe you've made here! I think newspaper was the perfect thing to use for collaging on the shoe. It is one of my favorite things to use :). I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out!

I found your blog following the 'heart it forward' challenge. I can't wait to see what you make for the challenge!!
