Another Fabric Mosaic

Altered slippers. Except for the black/gold and the red inside binding, the fabrics are Damascene - hand-loomed silk. The gold leaves are also Damascene. Can't see the shine of the sequins I used to cover the raw edges of color changes. This is fun to do, but dread doing the other one. I always had trouble w/the second shoe when, in my youth, I covered shoes w/brocade and made hats to match.

Bowing in thanks. Started a new cloth project yesterday - inspired by Teesha Moore's Fabric Journals. Don't know what it'll end up being, but it'll be best friend Jeannie's b.d. present.

Those shoes are fabulous! Somebody stop me! I must not veer off course, but I sure would like to try that. So unique and charming.

Thanks, Silva. Finished the second one last week, and have worn them to see if the Weldbond holds the sequins on - yep - it does. Silva: the process is to take your little screwdriver, loosen the soles about 1/4" inch so you can tuck the fabric inside and glue. When I covered shoes in my youth, I had a pattern for the whole shoe, but I was too lazy to cut out a pattern for these slippers, so I glued snippets of the silks. A friend thought it was one piece of fabric. The Weldbond is wonderful for this project. It's a very easy project. I know what you mean about veering off course. My mind is twirling in new directions, so as SOON as I finish this awful birdbath I built last summer, get back from PV and recover, I'm gonna chase another rabbit.
