flats + happy friday

One of my favorite pair of flats is a tiny bit too big and hard to walk in. Finally I just had to do something about it and came up with a quick idea of adding straps to keep my feet from swinging and kicking them at other people as I walk.

Hand-sewing the straps simply took 15 minutes, and it’s pretty self-explanatory {as you can see from the pictures}.

It also requires very little materials, which you can easily find around your house:

• no-fray glue
• fabric glue
• needle (quilting is best)
• thread
• scissors
• 4 small buttons (I like to mismatch mine)
• 4 elastic strips
• 4 cotton/linen strips (cover the threading inside)
