So lucky for everyone this post has absolutely nothing to do with sewing. Your welcome :). As hard as this might look its actually quite simple. WARNING: This project takes lots of time and patience. Not to scare anyone away from trying it or anything, but just a warning. The end result can be quite marvelous.
You will need:
- Pair of shoes; similar to oxfords
- Heavy duty scissors
- Seam ripper
Step 1: Laces off and mark the shoe on both sides. I went ahead and colored in the area that will be cut out.
- Mod Podge; the glossy kind
- Fabric of your choice
- Razor blade
- Glue gun
I suggest doing one section at a time.
Step 3: Apply fabric. Once fabric is secure make sure to apply a few more coats of Mod Podge over the fabric. Sit and let dry or if you can't wait like me, use a blow dryer to speed up the process.
Step 5: Glue the extra fabric inwards to cover up the raw edges.
