It’s amazing what you can do with a bit of masking tape and a hot glue gun… Before I knew it, a worn out pair of old ballet flats had turned into shoes worthy of a prince. Or should I say, Sultan.
I started by cutting pointy toe shapes out of a plastic ice cream container and attached these to the shoe with with masking tape. Quite a lot of tape – till I got the shape I wanted. Then, similarly, added the pointy bits at the top of the shoe… Once the basic shape was there, a hot glue gun attached the gold fabric to fit, and finally the rough edges were covered up with some sparkly braid. And voila, the Sultan was shod.
