My husband's cousin, a wildly talented artist in her own right, requested a pair of pink cowgirl boots. And were they for her, creative license on my part would have run rampant. But, they were for friends of hers, who tend toward the more traditional. So we were going for a more literal take on cowboy boots. Eek.
But, I gave it a try! Instead of straight stitching, I hand cut suede and sewed them on. She says she loves them. I hope the family does too!
