A Beautiful Beaded Stiletto

I’ve been getting advance gifts from my daughters for my upcoming 80th birthday, but I was surprised by a wonderful gift from my blogging friend, Freda, at The Adventures of the Empress of the Universe.  Last week, she had posted a tutorial on making stilettos from turkey lacers to use in sewing – and she sent me one!  It’s so precious and will definitely be used.  Freda enclosed it with a card by one of my favorites, Mary Engelbreit.

To learn how to make these beautiful stilettos, go to Freda’s blog:


Thank you, Freda, for making my day.

  1. That’s a perfectly lovely stiletto! I never thought about such a thing. I’m going over to look at her tutorial, and probably regret all the huge beads I gave away. =)

  2. What a beautiful gift! I have antique stilettos with ivory handles but this one is so very special with the pretty beads on it.
