This is a Invite only swap But I do make exceptions, so pm me if interested.....

Marie Antoinette Shoe Fettish Swap

Do you like elegant, shabby and vintage art? Do you like shoes? Then this swap is for you.
Marie Antoinette was a lady of style and elegance from head to toe. She used lots of beautiful fabrics, lace, ribbon and precious stones in her dress and shoes. So this is an opportunity for you to design a shoe that a queen (Marie) would wear.
Go all out and use your best supply of beautiful goodies. This is a high end swap so please do your best work ever, which I know you all could do. I will have groups of 3 queens. You will make two shoes to swap with two queens that way you will have a pair 1 shoe from each queen. You will include a small fragrant sache or lace trim and charms or candy in each shoe as an added treat. Below will be a template which you will save in your computer and print on 8x10 cardstock paper. Also there is a tutorial that you can look at (see link) to help you assemble your shoe. You can pm me for other Marie Antoinette Blogs to inspire you, I have a bunch that I follow with very talented ladies, so feel free to pm me for them.
This is so much fun that you will want more Marie Antoinette Swaps…..

Here is a sample I did, It is my 1st one so its not perfect:

Sample Shoe for Swap By Martica


Here is the blog and tutorial also the template to save and print:

http://artfulaffirmations .blogspot.com/2010/01/elegant-...


Here are some tips to consider:

I made 3 platforms 2 of cardstock 1 of THIN chipboard, one goes for inside shoe, chipboard goes on the bottom of shoe so that it won’t be so flimsy and the 3rd cardstock goes to cover chipboard .
The top of shoe that covers toes should be a little wider so that it can make room for the sache.
Paper should be reversible especially for the back of the heel.


I will send invites and anyone else that I have not sent an invite will have to PM me to add to list. If you have flaked in any of my swaps I will not honor your request to join.

This swap will end Oct 10, 2010 so be on time…. Or you will be beheaded...

Can we start this without knowing what group we will be in?? In other words, can it be our own style or must we wait to find out how the other queens want theirs??

Hey Martica, cute avi....but maybe it's all the head talk, but when I first looked I thought it was a joke and you were holding your head, or maybe it's the vicodin....

Tried my hand at a shoe today. I have got to make the top bigger, so I guess I am headed to the scrap store for paper. Think this will take a little practice, but I can't wait to complete mine. May need to hit the antique store too. Any reason to shop! LOL!

Martica, I am stacking some big beads for a heel, maybe a pretty clear one with a couple colored ones.

For those having trouble, idk if you saw the tutorial, but I cut my shoe top a bit wider the cut with about 1/4 inch over, then ran a bone folder on the sidelines and snipped every 1/4 inch or so to make tabs. With the indent from the bone folder they folded under neatly. I then was able to smoothly run the shoe top around the sole. Did the same on the back of the shoe, the bone folder/snip, bend.

Hope that helps!

I noticed in a blog they used something like a wooden dowel end and then a vintage button on the bottom of that. They painted and destressed the wooden piece. It looked cute. I can't remember where I found that.

Well I finally finished my other swap....so time to play with this one. I figure I will need to make a couple shoes to get my mojo going!!

How can you not want to create...we are talking shoes and beautiful embellishments!!

Wiser I saw that on u-tube also, it would be cute, a dowel piece about 1 1/2 in circle? by maybe a half inch high with a big vintage button on the bottom.

I also want to try a velvet inside the sole, the real stuff, would be nice and elegant.

I had a big bag of vintage jewelry I had collected for years and now have no idea where it is when I need it...

my idea for the heal, is to go to Acmoore and get the little wooden pieces, they have all sorts of them, that is where I am heading tomorrow, they bascially have a section with just little wooden pieces, like making dolls houses, and bird houses, try there. Hope that helps!! Sandy

We have different stores up here.. so I'm gonna have to find a place and look for wooden dowels..Have to maybe find one in Edmonton.. I'm REALLY looking forward to this..

Question... (haha) have to keep asking. We are making 2 shoes they don't have to be the same right?? I'm assuming it wouldn't matter but just making sure.

I want a heal on the two I want to make.. so I think it will take alittle practice..to figure out just the right thing. fun fun fun

Queen Martica.... on your 3rd link listed on the very first post....click on it and if you scroll down a bit you will see the youtube on Maria Antoinette, the Last Queen of France. It is a 12 part series.
I found it very interesting and so very sad.... she basically was persecuted. All the lies.... it is truly so very sad... she was only 16 yrs old when she got married and became a queen.
Very interesting for those who enjoy hearing about history.

Ok, the rules are a little different from what I read in the PM.

Just to be clear - I'll have 2 swap partners (not 1). And what's the sache or lace or candy?

Is something supposed to go in the shoes, or just decorate them?

Well the Antique store was a bust. Couldn't even find lace. Last time I was there, they had a bunch. Planning a trip to go over the bridge one day this week. I live on a peninsula, so to get to any craft stores I have to cross a toll bridge.

Hi Erica yes you have two partners that you will be making one shoe for each you will alter differently or the same if you like and include a small sache or lace or candy inside of shoe.At the end you will have a shoe from each lady/queen.
Hope I made sense.....

I went to Michaels and didn't get a thing! They didn't have anything new! I was so disappointed that I just decided to go to Sonic for a drink and come home.

what's the deal with the "heel"? Do we need to use something to make a heel on the shoe? Does the pattern include a paper heel?

Linnny, I picked up extra cork if you need some. Let me know.

Donna, when you say drink, was it the kind that will warm you up inside. I could reallly use a beer right about now. All that running around today made me very thirsty.

OK, are you all happy, I just made a lil peepee in my granny panties again! I have never seen such confusion and the swap is only a day old!!!! Stop the insanity!

Now let me get this right....

1) we make 10 shoes,
2) the pattern for the heel will be posted soon,
3) we get 5 partners each
4) we can use wheels or corks for the heels if we don't want to make it out of paper....
5) we get extra credit if we make a matching hat...

Do I have it right yet?????????????????

Oh my, oh my....now the peepee is running down my leg while the mascara is running down my chubby lil cheeks...

Hope you are all happy now!

Txerica, I don't think you have to do a heel. It's only for those who want to add a heel to their shoes. It's totally up to you.

I'll be moving to Wilmington NC when I sell this house linnny. We call it little New York because most of New York has moved down there. I have a friend that had a two bedroom apt that she paid a fortune for but when they moved to Wilmington, she was able to buy a 4 bedroom home. But then I think anywhere away from NY would be cheaper.
