Aside from my Fluevog obsession (subject of 3 A-Z Challenges – 2017, 2018, 2019), I MADE a pair of “basic” pumps from scratch in a workshop with Chris Francis at Otis College of Art and Design in June, 2017. It was a week of hard work!

[Later] I forgot to mention, these are THE most uncomfortable shoes. I knew, going in, the heels were not “my style”. But the shoes themselves? OMG. I probably used too much glue on them. The right shoe is still on the last (the form used to build the shoe, it’s turquiose in the photos). Where it shall remain, as a sculptural object!
This is a trick that I learned from Jean, who writes Dross Into Gold.
Repurpose your uncomfortable (ie too tight) or moth-eaten sweaters into cowls and armlettes!
Here’s how (the quick, non-sewing method for impatient people):
Lay your sweater on a flat surface and cut the arms and body crosswise at the underarm.
victim experiment will be on a cardigan. I’ll link to a photo if when it happens.
This post inspired by The Daily Post’s weekly Photo Challenge.
This week’s theme is Repurpose.
