Shoe Sale!!

Today, I went on a frantic search for shoes. I’ve been looking for shoes for the wedding for months now. I’ve looked at so many shoes, I’ve grown tired of looking at shoes. Never thought that could happen… I love shoes … love looking at them, trying them on, talking about them…

Back to Allyn’s I went. This time I got a yard & a half just to be safe. I stopped by a wig shop and got a styrofoam mannequin head. I had a plan – a great plan! I’d just use the mannequin, material & some bent quilting pins to try out placement before sewing it all together. I pinned my design but decided to wait a few days before sewing anything – just to make sure I was happy with the total effect.
