|Ignore the gem glue in the photo, I ended up using a hot glue gun. Gem glue will work, |
but I had just found out after the photo was taken that the glue was gone. Silly me!
Remember to hold the gems down for 15-20 seconds to make sure that they are sticking.
This was my "1st" finished product. I say first, because I was not thinking when placing the gems in the spots I chose. The large dots along the strap obviously did not work out. I immediately had to remove them, because when trying to put the shoes on I could not pull the strap out. Woops! My mistake! But the "2nd" finished product is shown below.
They look adorable with socks, and even without socks!

As you all know I love to read, and even better than a good book, is a beautiful book. A hand embroidered book that has so much detail. It makes the book that much more important!
I can't wait to get ahold of this book.
"Black Beauty" and "Emma" are also available from Jillian Tamaki's self-embroidery.
