Good morning world! Guess what today is? It’s BAND BANQUET!! Remember that I was trying to find the perfect vintage dress? I’ll be sure to show you guys pictures from tonight. I’m definitely ready to shake my tail feathers but there was just one problem. My shoes were a little too big.
I got a pair of hand-me-down heels from my aunt, but who says there’s any shame in secondhand? I, of all people, know the value of a great perviously owned article of fashion. The only thing is that her shoe size is around a half to a size bigger than mine, so in order to where these heels I would need to add an additional hole for the buckle. And after a little internet searching, I gathered a little background knowledge in order to do it myself with the things I have in my dorm.
All it takes is:
A pin (A thumbtack could probably work as well)
A size 1 knitting needle (Any bigger will make too big of a hole)
How to do it:
- Use the pin to make a small hole where you want to add it (either to make your shoe strap tighter or looser). Make sure the spacing is even with the rest of the holes.
- Use the knitting needle to make the small puncture bigger. This takes some elbow grease, so be patient.
- Rock your newly fitted shoes!
