I'm making orthopedic shoes for my keet (her Beakinstocks). I will have to run to the store to grab pipecleaners...but I have floral wire on hand and it seems sturdy enough. Could I use that instead to make little shoes? I am worried about how to get them off though. The chenille on the pipecleaners would make it easier to cut. I tried band-aids and cardboard but it keeps flipping over and can't get back...plus it's nearly impossible to get the toes actually straight!
