the inspiration - Your DIY pick:  Caroline Issa  for L.K. Bennett parrot shoes

Welcome to the "Pick your DIY" final stage. You, dear readers, pinned what you love around the web on our Pinterest board and we, crafty fairies (7 diy bloggers) transformed your favorite stuff in a DIY tutorial.
We'll keep the board active to collect diy inspirations and diy wishes so read how to get invited and start pinning if you haven't yet.
Today it's my turn to unveil the DIY tutorial of one of the most voted item, you'll see the other 6 on Sunday.

Firstly I would like to thank you for joining and for picking these super fun shoes that I didn't notice, how could I miss them? They scream spring with all these colors.
They are limited edition shoes designed for L.K. Bennett by the fashion icon Caroline Issa. Only 300 pair were made, you can  buy them here.
I would have called these shoes " fiesta latina" because they're so fun!
Ok now back to the DIY tutorial because this is what you asked me and not to give them a name.
Let's see together how to make these shoes (with very basic supply)!


Due settimane fa io e altre 6 diy bloggers abbiamo inaugurato per voi la bacheca di Pinterest "Pick your DIY". Voi avete salvato i vostri articoli preferiti dal web e noi con le nostre manine li abbiamo trasformati in tutorial di moda fai da te.
Grazie per aver partecipato numerosi, la bacheca rimarrà aperta per raccogliere i vostri desideri, leggete qui come come aderire se già non lo avete fatto.
Oggi vedrete il tutorial per realizzare uno degli articoli più votati, le scarpe di L.K. Bennett disegnate dalla fashion icon Caroline Issa;  scoprirete tutti gli altri domenica.
Complimenti per la scelta, sono delle scarpe deliziose e coloratissime adatte a inaugurare la primavera. Vediamo come realizzarle.


supply
You'll need:
  • trims ( 1,2 meters of red heart trim - 4 flowers of lace trim (or lace applique or flower patches)- 2 meters yellow trim)
  • glue
  • scrap of leather
  • left over wool yarn in many colors
  • shoes
  • fabric markers
It doesn't matter the kind of trimming you're going to use, pick them for their bright colors, there are plenty to choose from at the haberdashery.

Occorrente:
  • trine (1,2 metri di trina cuori - 4 fiori di trina di pizzo o toppe a forma di fiore - 2 metri di trina gialla)
  • colla
  • un ritaglio di pelle
  • fili in lana
  • scarpe
  • pennarelli stoffa
Scegliete le trine che più vi piacciono in merceria, prendetene di colori sgargianti.


Glue your trims around the edge of your shoe. I glued the red one over the yellow to recreate the zig zag pattern of the original shoe. You may be luckier than me and find some zig zag trims at your local store that are closer to the original.

Incollate le trine sul bordo della scarpa. I cuori ricreano il motivo zig-zag della scarpa originale. Se siete fortunate troverete una trina zig-zag già pronta in merceria.


This is how they look when done. The original shoes are more pointy than mine.

Ecco come appariranno finite.


Color lace flowers with fabric markers and let them try.

Colorate i fiori in pizzo con i pennarelli per la stoffa. Comprando le toppe a forma di fiore potrete saltare questo step.


Glue your flowers at the tip of the toe and at the top of the heel. I didn't liked how the mesh part looked onto shoes so I filled it with thread making it look embroidered.

In this case also flower patches could work very well. No coloring is needed just glueing. Unfortunately I didn't find any I liked but I suggest to search for them so you can jump one step.

Incollate i fiori sulla punta della scarpa e alla sommità del tacco. 
Non mi convinceva l'effetto della retina sulla scarpa quindi ho riempito il fiore di filo dandogli un aspetto ricamato.


Cut two little pieces of leather and glue them at the ankle.

Ritagliate due pezzetti di pelle e incollateli sul retro del tallone.



Cut two strips of leather 2,5 cm wide and 25 cm long and fold them in three to get the ankle strap. Glue a little trim onto it to decorate it. Sew a snap button at the edge to fasten it around the ankle.

Now the funniest part. While making these shoes I could try a technique that I saw many times on Pinterest. It's an easy way to make miny pom poms using a fork.  The original tutorial is by Vivid please.

Tagliate due striscie di pelle larghe 2,5cm e lunghe 25cm. Piegatele in tre per ottenere il laccetto che cinge la caviglia. Incollate la trina decorativa sul lato dritto. Cucite due bottoni automatici ai margini per legare il laccetto alla caviglia.

Per realizzare i pom pom ho utilizzato una tecnica facile e divertente che ho visto molte volte su Pinterest.
Il tutorial originale è di Vivid Please.

I used some left over yarn to make them. Now pom poms are ready to be knotted onto shoes. And you've done! Shoes are ready!

Terminate legando i pom pom alla scarpa. Guardate altre scarpe fai da te qui.

Da qualche settimane che sto cercando un paio di scarpe appunto perché volevo fare questo DIY !
Anch'io mi sono inamorato di questo modello di LK Bennett la prima volta che l'ho visto ♥
Comunque complimenti, proprio belle !

Beautiful shoes very creative but I think the clue and pink colors on the design doesn't much with red and yellow. Too much colors. If you are looking for golf accessories, you can visit by Golf Apparel.

Cute idea, these shoes look so cute! And even the pom poms are DIY! Great job :)
