Fairy Prince Shoes

I made a little change in the Pink Fairy shoes - adding and changing some of the embellishements to make them a little more feminine.  I also modified the pattern a little to make a pair of fairy boots fit for a Prince.  I am going to modify the pattern a little to make the toes a bit longer so they don't look so much like babie booties.  The blue shoes are made from felt with cotton fabric fused on.  I dyed and stamped this fabric then added highlights with dimensional paint.  The felt was covered with blue glitter glue so the inside of the shoes sparkle too. I buttonhole stitched all around the pieces by hand with metallic thread then whip stitched them together couching in metallic fuzzy yarn.  The actually took only about 3 hours not counting drying time.  Now to finish my Hoffman Challenge doll.
