Introduction: Pixie Feet: an Accessory for the Feet !

Women love accessories, and women love to be trend setters. Inspired from ethnic Indian jewelry, these foot accessories complement a wide range of clothes. They look great on bare feet, can be worn with a variety of footwear, and make the simplest of slippers fun!

Step 1: Tools and Materials You Will Need:

a sewing machine/basic hand stitching skills
a needle
four 5 cm thick and 28 cm long strips of cloth (can vary according to foot/ankle size)
four bits of Velcro
couple of meters of paracord

For decoration:
some extra cloth
any other decorative material you wish to use.

Step 2: The Ankle Band

Take two of the four strips.
(You can use two colours for each pair of strips and make the product reversible.)
Fold 1 cm on all four sides of strips and stitch to form seams.
Place the strips back to back and stitch together.
Attach a piece of Velcro to the left extremity of either face of the strip.
Stitch parallel lines along the length of the strips to secure the band and give it a classy finish.
Repeat the process with the other pair.

Step 3: The Braid

I have chosen to do a rather complicated braid, it is a bit out of the scope of this instructible.
I suggest you do simple triple braid , its almost as effective and is much easier.

Step 4: The Decoration

Cut the remaining cloth into small square pieces.
Pinch the four corners to form a sort of button.
Stitch the beads on in patterns.
I encourage you to do your own decoration! 

Step 5: Now for the Assembling

Now for the assembling:
Place the buttons in the middle of the band.
Slip the braid between the band and the buttons.
Stitch the three firmly together.

Step 6:

You can add or change to suit your liking and make the product original.

Voila! An unique gift for your loved one. She’ll love to show it off to the world, and she sure will be proud of you…

    They are so pretty and fashionable! Thanks so much for sharing your hard work! Have a splendorous day!

    Beautiful work! I've seen barefoot sandals with thin chains and beads, and they never really appealed to me, but the ones you made with silk are lovely and much more my style. Great instructable, and wonderful photos of the step by step process.

    Very cute! I love those little "buttons" you created with the cloth and the beads :D
