OK, I’m so in love with todays project, I can’t help it! This is one of those completely mundane things that is transformed when done in cute fabric!
I pinned this tutorial ages ago, and today I just had to try it! Here’s my first pair:
Keep in mind, these are child length shoelaces in my shoes just to show you what they look like all tied up and everything. I couldn’t find a pair of my kids shoes that lace up and looks decent (seriously, these boys and their shoes!). How cute is that? I’ll be making a longer pair for my shoes for sure! One thing I definitely learned though, is you probably want to make the fabric strips a smidge thinner than they recommend. They say 2″, but I really had a hard time getting them into the tubing, and even lacing them was a pretty tight fit in the shoe holes. Subsequent pairs I’ll probably make 1 3/4″ wide and see how that works.
Are you playing along with busting your own scraps? Show me your projects! Leave a linkie in the comments for me (and everyone else!) to ogle your goodies (wait, that sounds bad..you know what I meant).
