Adventures in Little Girl Bling

My associate at work has a little girl who is all-over this DocMcStuffins character. We are trying to do something similar to the above photo, as she is not in the position to spend that kind of money on play shoes. I've been able to find the embroidery designs on etsy.com since Disney hasn't made a new design for years (got a Disney Brother machine for this purpose, but they are stuck in the past with their embroidery designs). Disney has nothing to worry about with these designs.javascript:emoticon(':(')

What would you embroidery the design on (so far going with heavy cutaway with a polyfelt top) and then what would you line it with. I'm planing on making a "sandwich" and have the tongue between?

How much should stick out when fully laced (these are tiny high-tops)? Do kids (age 3 or so) even lace these?

After research, E6000 glue is suggested for gluing the crystals to the shoe toe and anywhere else on the shoe. What would you use? Could I trust the hotfix crystals to stick to canvas?

And if this works I'm planing a pair of sparkly red "Dorothy" flats for myself with maybe a Toto design on top for an occasion to flip-out some friends in a formal event.

If you've made anything like this, or just bedazzled some shoes, please advise me. Thanks

Super cute! I saw on a blog today some ladies converse with the tongue appliqued with a monogram and I thought that was so fun.

I might have to do the monogram AND the bling...just because I can.

I have always been a sucker for cute baby shoes. Those are great. I have no suggestions but love the shoes.

I looked around Pinterest and E6000 is definitely the glue of choice.

Those are adorable. Do you know if that's painted on? It kind of looks like paint. And if so, do you know what type? I have a couple opportunities for baby gifts in the near future.

I'm assuming paint as she likes to dabble in fancy nail polishing. I can ask!!

Heck with the little girl stuff, I want these for ME! Love em! Love the lining on the tongue.

Ok, who knows how to make the ends of these "laces" ??? Know that plastic-ish part has a name but can't recall it. Have some great ribbon for it.

Ok, would it be "OK" to wear these with my bland plain color uniform to work? I'm a dental hygienist, or is that not professional? The other women there have pinked their hair, tattoos, piercings, etc...I'm tired of being the only boring one (besides my boss), but I like playful stuff.

I personally think that a crazy accessory is the way to go if you need to wear professional attire or a uniform, as long as it's not prohibited in your dress code.

It's a way to be a little zany without being "out there."

I was in urgent care yesterday and the medical assistant had on THE most adorable, colorful shoes. Which would be absolutely necessary for me if I had to wear scrubs everyday :)


They're called aglet's. I have made plenty of ribbon shoe strings but no longer have a source for them :)
