your shoes were my inspiration, this post is the reason I tried this and they came out amazing thank you! It took me about a month and a half, I got hot fix crystals off ebay for $10  (about 2800 2mm crystals) and they worked great, they are actually really easy to apply. I got all the lace off etsy for $20 and the shoes were only $30!

OP and lullabellek where did you get your appliques? I am wanting to make a diy flat version of this because I cant wear heels and I have looked for the lace that I can either use as is or cut into the right pattern and add crystals but cant find any that look right!

@misslineman:  these are the pieces I used, the leaves can as a set of three, I used those for the flower petals and the detail between the swirl and the flower, the second piece is for the swirls up the side, I only uses a few leaves off the third piece, hope this helps!

These are amazing. I hated the Twilight movies, but I couldn’t deny that I really wanted Bella’s wedding shoes for my own wedding. Thanks for the tutorial!

@LullabelleK:  Great job on the shoes!! Do you mind telling me where you got the shoes? I have been looking everywhere for the perfect white satin heels and I just can not find them, but yours are perfect! Once I find the right heels I am going to attempt to make my own swan replica. I hope they come out as good as the ones posted on this board!
