Lady's boot- one step forward, one back

Had to take the base off- absolutely did not like how it turned out, and it was getting more and more rounded by the day. Add in the heel mushing about, and being in the wrong position to support the boot standing, well, time to get  out the scissors.
Here is one shot of it full, before removing. You can see the heel coming to one side.
Here is the fixed base, using long, 1 inch bugles, with size 11 seed beads filling in the center. The heel bit was removed, and folded strips of grocery bag stuffed into it, then replaced in a better position. The entire boot was sewn a bit off-center, but this is still a major improvement, and no sag in the heel!

And here is the fun beading part; adding 8mm chatons, each surrounded differently, and beaded off-boot before being stitched on. Each paisley will also be beaded differently. It's fun using the same beads and colors to create different looks, that then all work together.

Back to beading!! Happy Sunday, everyone!
