Hi Everyone! In Part 3 we switch gears a bit and take a look at something a bit more crafty! Shari is joining us with a fun new pattern and members-only full video tutorial!
Everyone who grew up in the 80s remembers those trendy bright plastic shoes we called jellies. Although predecessors to these shoes probably originated in the late 50s or early 60s, it wasn't until the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee the jelly craze took off. The 80s was totally into all things bright and synthetic and jelly shoes At first, although they were cheap to produce, their high price tag made them chic to wear. Soon high demand and brand knock-offs brought prices down to as low as $1 a pair and kids were buying them in every color and style under the sun.
This week, I am going to show you how to make a doll size version of the totally awesome jellies with a handful of glitter hot glue sticks.
Are you ready? Grab your pattern and follow along in the video posted below!
