Shoe Quatro Part 2: Regency Slippers

Next up for shoes: Highburys!

These were rather simple. I used International Professional Fabric Shoe Dye A162 to dye them and added 15mm double faced silk ribbon in silver.

The dye went on VERY easily and was a dream to work with. Apart from one teeny tiny spot it looks as if I bought the shoes dyed.

The slippers were inspired these slippers at the MET:
