STEP 1: Use our pattern or draw a 2cm star onto a cardboard as shown in our illustrations with this step.

STEP 2: Use the cardboard star template and a pencil to draw stars all around one of the shoes. Draw horizontal lines around the other shoe with a pencil to make 1.5cm wide stripes.

STEP 3: Paint the horizontal stripes on the one shoe in red and the background around the stars of the other shoe in blue.

STEP 4: Tie a double knot onto a sewing thread and sew Swarovski Sew-on Stones 3288 8mm Crystal on top of the red stripes. (Do not pierce through to the inside of the shoe with the needle and thread). Repeat the steps with the horizontal rows and the stars as shown in the illustration and material list.
