If the original concept is tricky, the reality will be nearly impossible.

I honestly do not remember when I came up with the idea, but all of a sudden I felt that the best use of my exotic scraps that I received for Christmas were to piece them together and make a multi-colored pair of heels out of them.  What was I thinking!?!?

I knew it would be tricky. . .I just didn’t realize it would be stupid tricky. . . .

This was my original sketch of the design:

And this was the madness that ensued after:

I taped the backside of my original sketch and cut out all of the pieces to use as tiny templates. . . .and then I used those pieces to outline the scraps and make sure the color choices I had selected would work (some did not and I had to improvise and move some of the colors around from my original design).

Stay tuned to see how it all came together. . . or didn’t quite turn out as expected. . . .
