I posted about working on this previously, and promised to keep you guys updated! Unfortunately I got distracted with school/work/house-hunting/wedding planning and didn’t finish as quickly as expected! Let me preface this post with stating that this takes a LONG TIME to do. However, I actually enjoy working on it while I watch TV when I just need a mental break.
So, I’ve officially finished my first shoe!
Gathering up my supplies. I purchased pink flats on ebay for ~$20 shipped. My crystals (also from ebay) cost about $30 shipped for approximately 6000 crystals. I got the glue from Michaels (approximately $4 with a 40% off coupon)
My first little bit of progress!
And roughly 30 – 40 hours later, shoe #1 is done!

@TealaB: You’re going to have to tell me which Ebay seller you used where you got crystals for $30. I bought my crystals off of Ebay and it cost me around $140.
