For those who have been reading you will know that I had begun my mission to find the perfect ceremony shoes.
While searching I had found a pair at Wittner – which were almost perfect – they were just too high! I did like the applique on the heel and the style of the shoes though.
After a few weeks of searching I had found a pair of champagne peep toe heels, which I bought online and received a few weeks ago. I then started my hunt for the lace applique to add to the shoes.
Amazingly this turned out to be the difficult part of creating my perfect wedding shoes. I had been in to a major fabric/craft retailer and was told they don’t stock applique anymore. I searched craft stores, small fabric retailers, Op Shops, you name it!
So i went to the trusty back up plan…eBay! Which is probably where I should have started, it has yet to fail me. My searches brought back some interesting results! But in the end I found 2 sellers that had black floral applique, they are different sizes – so I decided to test out both before adding them to the shoes.
Please excuse the amateur photography – my makeshift studio (2 pieces of A3 paper and an empty desk) needs renovating. So now I have to decide which design I like the most – before I glue it on and change my mind!
I am leaning towards the first one – but I’m still not 100% sold. I think I’ll leave this one for a little while and come back to it, otherwise I will need to post about fabric glue solvents and the pros and cons of hot glue guns…
