I is for Improvement

Today I've chosen the letter I for Improvement. I'm all about DIY / handmade / use what you have / reuse / recycle / etc. So here's a quick story of how I took something I owned and improved it so I would like it more!

I bought these Minnetonka Moccasins about 3 years ago. I like them, but they're all black and a little bit boring. But whatevs, I wore 'em anyway.



Then sometime last year the leather shoelace that makes up the little bow somehow broke, leaving me with a lopsided bow that never stays tied. Lame.

Then, being the etsy lover that I am, I found some handmade moccasins from Darlingtonia Moccasin Co. So cute!



And expensive! I already have moccasins, so I might as well improve what I have and make something better, right? More etsy searching led me to these freakin' cute handmade flowers from AMarketCollection:



I sewed them to my shoes!



Now my falling-apart moccasins are updated and look pretty darn cute.





Quite the improvement :)
