Back-to-school season is upon us, and you know what that means.
Recently, I was on the hunt for some comfortable shoes suitable for my 1st grader to wear on the playground, yet cute enough to coordinate with the dresses and skirts she loves so much. Oh, and something not too expensive because her feet grow so fast!
Target to the rescue!
After closer inspection at home, I was surprised to notice
that the laces were strung through holes without eyelets.
I worried that in addition to looking unfinished,
the lack of stability for the laces would result in tearing.
I immediately thought of my stash of eyelets dating back
to my scrapbooking days (I fear those days will never return...).
I had the perfect solution: star shaped eyelets!
And they were large enough for the laces to slide through!
I didn't have enough stars to complete each shoe,
so the tops were finished off with regular eyelets.
My little girly is very excited with her craft-i-fied
shoes. She says that they make her look like a rock stAr!
P.S. Be sure to check out this site for a ton of ideas on lacing up a new pair of kicks; who knew there were so many ways to lace a shoe?!
