DIY Fringed Loafers - Guest Post

Today we have a guest post from Zaiena who blogs over at On a Style High and she's here sharing with us her tutorial on how to make DIY Fringed Loafers. Over to you Zaiena!

My name is Zaiena Haider, a graduate of the London College of Fashion, and a certified promotional makeup artist. Currently residing in my home town Islamabad, Pakistan. I am a textiles designer by profession but I recently started my own blog on my already existing Website My Blog is 'On a style high' and I share various posts from my 'Look of the Day' to fashion and beauty DIYs and much more. Please don't hesitate to contact me or to share your ideas or views and comments on my blog. I would love to help new and established creative bloggers.

I am very thrilled to be a guest star blogger on Makeup and Macaroons, it's always a great thrill to take the initiative to contact different bloggers from all around the world specially from the same field of passion, and be a part of their world.

Here are a few simple steps to follow on how to create your own personalized fringed loafers:

Step 1: 
Collect your supplies
  • a pair of loafers in any colour you prefer to redesign (I got mine from New look)
  • strong hold and flexible glue (there are various types of glues available for fabric, beads, and crystal stones you can opt for E5000)
  • a pair of sharp scissors
  • a pencil or tailors chalk
  • two scraps or pieces of leather or pleather (I used black and gold for the tips)
  • a small ruler

Step 2:
Cut out a curved shape of leather measuring approximately 3 inches wide and 2 and a half inches in length depending on show size. Don't worry about the points you will be adding gold leather to them. Draw out 6 strips equally, keeping the tips at different lengths and cut all the way to to the curved end leaving a half inch as it is so they don't come apart.

Step 3: 
Add a thin strip of gold leather onto the right side of the fringe and glue it together, then carefully trim it to match each fringe.

Step 4: 
Glue the piece to the inside of your shoes' upper strap, as far along as you want the fringe to be. I kept mine long as I wanted it to look like the ones I saw on Andy Torres from the Stylescrapbook. Hers has metal tips and aren't available in store.

Step 5: 
Allow the glue to dry for at least 24 hours before wearing them to avoid them falling off or the glue from showing.

Step 6: 
Enjoy them, style them with different looks. Here's how I wore them.

For any questions or if you get stuck at anytime contact me on , via Twitter or Facebook.

Have a fabulous weekend :)
