Needlepoint shoes. Niiiice. Artfire tweeted these shoes re-covered with scraps of thrift-store needlepoints by Aunt Peaches to great effect! I think they are bee-yoo-ti-ful. It's not too hard to find other needlepoint shoes (usually slippers and slip-ons) but they aren't as chaotic and cool as these!
