I was walking through the mall and saw these shoes in the window at Kate Spade and I knew I just had to try and make them.

Here are my version:

For this project, you will need: plain black pumps, wide-width satin ribbon, zig zag scissors, velcro in the same colour as your ribbon, iron, fabric scissors, needle and thread, visoflex and pins.

Begin by cutting the ribbon in 4 lengths, each the length of the diameter of your ankle:

Cut and pin the visoflex to the back of 2 of them:

From here iron the lengths together, the visoflex will help support the ankle straps and make it more stable:

Use the zig zag scissors to cut the edges of the lengths so they don’t fray:

Now it’s time to make the gorgeous “Grande Bow.” I learnt to create bows this way from that amazing Crate and Barrel workshop.

You then slice the bow ends on an angle:

Sew the bow on the end of the ribbon length:

From here, cut the velcro and then hand stitch it to the back of the strap:

Repeat this process on the other side and you will have your ankle straps:

The final product from all angles!
