Okay, I know I can't complain about the weather. We have had a really nice winter, with very few actual freezes. It does get chilly at night, and we do have the occasional cold day....but all in all our winters are mild compared to elsewhere in the States.
I do prefer spring and summer, though :) aaaannnnnnnddddd I always go barefoot, or wear flip flops or sandals. I have always wanted to make a pair of Barefoot Sandals. Really! And when Courtney aka Bonesaw Betty (from the Ocala Cannibals Roller Derby!!!) pinned a pair on Pinterest and added a tag that said " Della Merritt could make these- she's crafty!" I knew the time had come, and I better get on the ball and make some.
Of course, for my 1st pair, I'm all thinking seashells and beach weddings, right....
so this past Tuesday I gave it go! I didn't have anything else to do.... I'm kinda laid up ;)
Very elegant, and so beach wedding-y!
These will fit an 8.5 to 9 US womens size. I wear an 8 and they are just a lil bit loose on me, but I could wear them without them falling off or anything.
See? Loose, but not falling off loose...an 8 could wear them.
See my boo boo by my big toe joint? A bottle of body wash fell on my foot in the shower :(
I was bleeding! I'm accident prone, to say the least LOL!
Enough side views, huh?
And on the other toe.... ant bite. I told you I run around barefoot.... and ants don't die in the winter where there is no snow!
I must say I DO Love them!!! I want to make a less 'dressy' pair, too. I think they are so fun! And mine are so totally different than any I've ever seen. Have you ever seen any like these? I think a Bohemian style with leather would be cool, too! I almost don't want to put this pair in my shop hmmmmm. And, can I say OUCH for standing on these shells?! It's the mass assortment by my pond out front, and they are not foot traffic friendly! Which is why my toes aren't in an elegant pose hehehehe!
