Decorated shoe tree decoration

Shoe tree decoration designed and made by Jenny Stacy
Cinderella shall go to the ball!

I've been wanting to make a shoe along these lines for ages but I couldn't figure out how to attach the top bit to the sole. I didn't want to use card but I didn't know how else to achieve the stiffness needed.

Then last week Jill Haines came in with some lovely Christmas decorations she has made and mentioned the word 'buckram' which is something she uses.
Buckram is the answer. It acts like card but it is a fabric. Thank you Jill.

I'm looking forward to making more of these shoes... pictures to come.
Today I've written two posts. See below.
