Make Romantically Dapper Shoelaces from Silk Ribbon!

December 27, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Karen from the blog Serious Craft made this awesome tutorial on making your own fancy-schmancy shoelaces from lengths of ribbon.  These dapper accessories have a Bloomsbury-esque romantic aspect to them – perfect for long afternoons writing in coffee houses, or dreamy evenings at the opera.  We’d like a pair in this ethereal hand-dyed Hanah Silk™ ribbon in teal, purple, violet, and green, and then paired with a pair of swank blue suede wingtips.
