I have a pair of grey leather balet flats.
I like boots.
So after a while, my desire for boots has become loads stronger. And then! From the clouds! SPATS! I knew I didn't want to ruin my flats, and this seemed like the perfect solution. So I tweedeled around in my workroom, and voila! Spats! I used dark green ultra-swede, some cord, some knit fabric left over from a sweater, and a light floral fabric. And thread. Here they are! I'll (hopefully!) post a tutorial later, but for now, here they are!
