img_1278img_1274I found a great deal on these dyeable victorian vintage wedding boots (never worn!), but they were badly discolored and really couldn’t be used for white, however champagne was an option.  Of course, any color could have been used, but I wanted them to be dark ivory.

To prep, I stuffed the shoes with plastic bags after removing the laces.  I used brewed black coffee (still warm!) and literally “painted” the coffee on the shoes as evenly as possible.  I then blotted with paper towels to get all the excess off and as dry as possible.  I dipped the laces in the coffee and left to dry.

As I was completing the project, my husband walked by and I asked him to guess how I’d done it, and his reaction was “why didn’t you use wine, since it’s the color of love? ” Now I’m thinking of doing another pair ASAP!  There are lots of natural products that can be used as dye, and if the shoe was created, as these were, to accept dye, why not?

I added the blue stones for the “something blue”, however I’m thinking of finding some beautiful silk ribbon to use as the laces.  I think that would be a beautiful touch!  As always, contact me at sherry_george@comcast.net.

img_1184These size 6B shoes are from a vintage lot.  Upon close observation, I found a couple of tiny marks/scuffs, and they have normal wear on the bottom to have been worn for a few hours.  My guess is they were worn for a wedding!

The vintage satin shoes are embellished with lace, sequins and pearls and although beautiful on their own, could be dyed any color.  I’m offering these beautiful size 6 Dyeable for $22.  As always, contact me at sherry_george@comcast.net to purchase!
