I love the way the pumps turned out – definitely a unique conversation starter perfect for a fun night out or special occasion.
This is a pretty simple project – previously I’ve showed how to stitch out freestanding lace butterflies on the Brother PE800 using great software from Nancy’s Notions. Then I applied the flat backed rhinestone crystals with a Crystal Ninja wax pickup tool.
Originally, I’d planned to hand sew the butterflies randomly to the shoes but then I decided to use Quick Grip glue for convenience, and the stuff seems strong enough for the task.
As a bonus craft project, I also used that glue to make butterfly hair clips with a couple of the larger butterflies.
So many uses for freestanding lace and the embroidery machine – I’d love to hear about your creative embroidery projects!
