EXHIBIT A - BIKER BOOTS
Check these biker boots I brought last weekend! I've been needing a new pair for yonks and I found this grungy looking ones in a cheap shop which led to my spontaneous-buy-of-the-week.
However, I wanted to make these a little different so here comes this mini, VERY EASY DIY!
you will be needing:
I say superglue, but you could choose to pin or sew on the lacey/crochet ribbon - it's up to you. I find that superglue is quicker, easier and stronger though.
I'm going to be placing the crochet ribbon on the tongue (I think that's what its called!) of the boot. So I need to cut a piece of ribbon the length of the widest part of the tongue. Comme ca..
(obsessed with this ribbon right now, I've sewn/stuck it onto basically everything I own!)
Now you can experiment with where you want the ribbon to go: top, bottom, or middle. Or maybe even on the back! Temporarily pin the lace down and try them on (obviously avoiding injuring!) to see which looks best for you.
(poorly focused picture sorry!)
I chose to place mine at the top of the boot's tongue. Now glueing may begin!
Apply a generous layer the the front and a little bit of the back of the tongue. BE CAREFUL THOUGH, carelessness or excess glue can lead to a nasty layer of it all over your hands (bad past experience).
Let the glue dry and make sure all the little frayed threads are firmly placed down and then we're finished - already!
EXHIBIT B - GRUNGY/GIRLY BIKER BOOTS.
I find the lace makes the boots easier to wear with skirts and dresses.
Hope you've enjoyed this mini tutorial and I'd LOVE to know if you try this!
