From Busted to Beaded

Busted Shoe

Back in March I purchased a cute pair of shoes for my daughter. I was overcharged (35 SAR), but who cares – I am a rich American :) – (not). The Velcro came undone at the strap almost instantly the next day. I had two choices;

1. bask in grrr-ism

2. seize the opportunity to pull out my craft bag :)

Instead of simply sewing the Velcro back on the strap, I decided to add large Seed Beads to the equation as “dots” and “checks” go great together.

After finding a suitable needle and thread, I went to work.

All done, however, my daughter refuses to wear these shoes. She fears the strap coming undone again. Oh well, I’ll give them to charity. I’m sure there is a little girl in Jeddah that would love to have them, In Shaa Allaah.

Wa ‘alaikumus salaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. Seriously, if you want them I’ll bead the entire strap and maybe the ruffles at the front and ship them to you. My daughter runs screaming “noooooooo” when she sees me coming with those shoes saying that they are “maksoor” (broken)…lol. I want her to wear them so bad (smiles), but she has a mind of her own.
