It's Christmas,everything can happen.
In fairytales a frog's dream is to be kissed so he transforms in a prince so a pair of Primark shoes can dream to transform in a much more expensive pair of Zanotti particularly in Zanotti mountainious shoes,shoes i've been looking with desire for a year now.

A Natale tutto può succedere.Come un ranocchio dopo essere stato baciato può diventare un principe così un paio di scarpe economiche come un paio di Primark possono sognare di diventare un paio di Zanotti,in particolare le Zanotti mountanious shoes scarpe che desidero da un anno ormai.

the inspiration: Zanotti mountanious shoes

Let's go.I started with a pair of primark cuff shoes.These are particularly right for the project because they don't have any zipper at the side like many other shoes i've seen,they are pull on intead plus they are already studded in gold.Zanotti shoes have silver studs and black rhinestones.

Cominciamo.Ho comprato un paio di primark con la fascia alla caviglia.Sono perfette per il progetto perchè sono senza zip laterali che rovinerebbero l'intaglio, si infilano soltanto tirando,in più sono già borchiate. Le Zanotti hanno borchiette argentate e cristalli neri.

Primark shoes £25

I've drawn the shape of the profile of the shoes life size.I've put the shoes onto the paper and drawn the contour and inside that contour i've drawn the shoe-shape

Ho disegnato il profilo della scarpa da realizzare.Ho coricato le scarpe sul foglio e ne ho tracciato i contorni.Dentro i contorni ho disegnato la forma.

I've fastened the model onto the shoes with pins

e assicurata alla scarpa con degli spilli

I've finished cutting the shoes then with the cut part (i've cut big pieces only) i've decorate the front of shoes.I've sewn the 2 bars and the flames on the front.This was hard with a normal needle and no cobbler equipment.I've finished ironing on some gold rhinestuds on the front where there was nothing attached and i've done! Giuseppe Zanotti is a total genious, a great master,i love every shoe he designs.

Ho finito di tagliare le scarpe e poi con la parte tagliata (sono stata attenta a fare pezzi grossi) ho decorato la parte frontale delle scarpe.Ho cucito le 2 barre davanti e le fiamme.Questa è stata la parte difficile con solo un ago e nessun equipaggiamento da calzolaio. Ho finito incollando con il ferro da stiro delle borchiette dove mancavano sul davanti.E ho finito!
Sono fermamente convinta che Giuseppe Zanotti sia un genio assoluto,un grande maestro,adoro ogni scarpa che progetta!

hi barbie thanks for the sweet comment
don't fear to try doing your own,the worst that can happen is to ruin £25 shoes :)
