Anthro Sloan Square Knockoff Shoes

Keeping with my theme of posting the projects I've been doing from my ideas folder... Here's the shoes I made using Rachel's tutorial over at Bubbly Nature Creations. She had me at shoes, but to throw in the word Anthro and a chance to use my sewing machine I had to make them! These beauties have been named 'Sand & Sea shoes' by Rachel but Anthro call them Sloan Square shoes which sounds a bit dull for their price tag really.

Had to make mine a pair of proper heels, as I can't wear those flat ballet pumps or kitten heels as they cause me such pain after a couple hours. Before making these I never knew modpodge was so damn versatile so thanks for teaching me that Rachel!


I'll be posting the necklace and top to wear these lovelies with in the coming week so keep your eyes peeled for that too :)
