Hmmm. I’m not sure! I think the red would be awesome, but only if you did the whole bow. Is this possible? I’ve never done anything like that before!

If not, I’d loove it with just the middle part done in crystals!

They’re looking great!! I’d just do the middle bit of the bow too 🙂

I vote for doing dark red crystals on just the middle part of the bow.

🙂 they’re looking great! I can’t wait too see the finished product! And I vote for red wherever you can sneak it in, it’s my favorite color!!

It looks great so far!!! I’m not sure what shoe size you are, but based on how close you’re putting the crystals, you’re definitely going to need more crystals than what you have.

I used about 3500 crystals on my size 10 shoes and mine aren’t as close as yours are.

Also I like the idea adding crystals to the bow but I’m not sold on using the dark red color. The crystal AB gives off a lot of pastel colors and adding a dark red color will be a HUGE contrast. But that may be what you’re going for.

I would leave the bow alone!  They look great by the way!

Wow, what a huge difference a few crystals make.  Great job!!  I would leave the bow alone, and let there be a bit of a juxtaposition between the sparkle of the shoes and the satin of the bow.

How much does an endeavor like this cost? Would love to try it, but it might be too pricey?
