Yes, it's true! I actually made these shoe clips.
I may give them to sister number 3 for her birthday in April
(unless something else lights my fire between then and now).
She's really easy to make for because she always appreciates handmade presents, being a lapsed artist herself.
I took photos of the process but will save them for another time, or for when someone shows particular interest.
Anyhow, here's the end result. I'm pleased.
