I have a much-loved pair of Fluevog shoes that needed a new pair of shoelaces.
And since I'm a girl with a lucet, I've got a handy way to whip up a pair of pretty shoelaces whenever I please. I also have magic powers in color-matching my laces to my shoes as long as I can find the right yarn color. (Try to find a full array of colored shoelaces for sale in the length and style that you need. Not going to happen!)
I felt like keeping the look of these shoes classic and versatile. In this case black yarn was a pretty easy color to get a hold of. The sheen and weight of Lucci Rayon was perfect for my trusty heels.
I was lucky enough to be taking a cruise when my shoelace-making activity was going on. Here's my view while luceting and enjoying a prosecco. Wish this could be my view every day!
I used the Basic Turn Lucet Cord worked to the length of the original shoelaces.
Then I also used pliers to attach these shoelace tips (called aglets) to give my laces an extra-fancy finishing touch.
Got any shoelaces that need replacing? Make yourself something fancy!
