I started off with these boring red canvas shoes, I've hardly worn them, I wonder what I was thinking when I bought them!
You will need:
Old pair of shoes
Fabric Scraps big enough for the part of your shoe you want to cover
Big Flat Brush/Sponge to apply the Mod Podge
hot glue gun (only needed for the bow on top)
I decided to cover my shoe only partially, you can also cover it completely, a great tutorial on how to do that can be found here.
- Take three strips of roughly cut fabric as shown in the picture. My strips measured approximately 6"x1", 4.5"x1" and 1.5"x0.5". The dimensions don't have to be exact, cut the longest strip a little over double the desired length of your bow and adjust the other strips' dimensions accordingly.
- Fold and hot glue the first 2 strips from both ends as shown in the picture.
- Place the smaller bow on top of the larger one and hot glue them together.
- Scrunch up the bow from the middle and hot glue it in place.
- Wrap the third fabric strip tightly around the middle and hot glue it in place and your bow is ready.
Hot glue your bow on to the shoe and you are done!
Hope you enjoyed my short tutorial.....
I just discovered that my shoe make-over project is a perfect fit for this month's challenge at the lessology blog - Challenge #25: For the love of fabric......I'm not if this is acceptable cause I posted this post on 7th May but I am linking it up to the challenge on 15th May....
Thanks for visiting!
