How to add straps to shoes
I just bought a pair of flats that I love, but the straps were too small. So, I cut the straps off, but then the flats wouldn’t stay on my feet.
You are going to love my solution.
You can do this to any pair of flats that you have laying around the house and it looks great!
Plus, it is super easy to do.

Here’s how I did it:

You’ll need ribbon and a yarn needle.
Cut the ribbon at an angle so that it with thread the needle. Also, cut the old straps off of the flats.
Poke a hole where you want the ribbon strap to go, then thread the needle and pull the ribbon through the hole. Knot the end of the ribbon.
Do the same thing to the other side of the shoe and then tie the ribbon ends around your ankle.
