Anthropologizing Walmart 2

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

After last week's tutorial on the Hibiscus sandals,
I got a request from a reader to do a tutorial on
how I would imitate the Rose Remnant Sandals.

Obviously, I went with different colors all together,
but I wanted to use the sandals and the
great teal ombre ribbon I already owned.

I put a little fold in the middle to give each tri-fold layer more dimension.
If you don't own a sewing machine, you can do this step with a needle and thread also.

Your rose should look like this when you're done with all three layers.

Ideally, I would have used a single piece for the center,
like a small brooch or chandelier earring,
but I didn't have time to get to the mall and already had
several beads in this color, so I went with it.
If you decide to use individual beads,
the trick is to tack down only two or three together.
Work your way around the center of the flower until the
beading covers as much space as you want.


  1. So cuet! What a great idea!!!!!

  2. wow love this idea. I'm totally going to try it out! thank you

  3. If I wasn't so self conscious about my toes I would totally do this...well maybe I just need a sassy pedicure! Thanks for sharing!

  4. SUper that ombre ribbon!

  5. These look just as pretty as the first ones, but even easier to make! I love how they came out and the ombre ribbon is lovely.
