Thanks for your responses yesterday! It sounds like most of you think similarly, so it was easy to see what you all like—thank you!
Today I have a super easy tutorial for you!
I still need to add some velcro to a pair of flats so I can use my shoe ruffles on them, but this is another little refashion that can be done on flats or heels.
I bought some granite spray paint and sprayed the shoes. I’ve seen this done on a couple blogs. I actually don’t think it worked very well on these shoes. It’s already rubbed off in some places. *Next time, I’m going to just do this on a pair of flats from the thrift store that are already the color I’d like them to be.*
What You’ll Need:
-pair of flats or heels
-some E-6000 glue or other strong glue that binds fabric
-two 4” x 6” pieces of fabric
-two 1/2” x 2.5” pieces vinyl (I used vinyl because it doesn’t fray, but you can use a small strip of fabric and make it the same size to use for your loop)
-clothespin (not pictured)
Glue the loop onto the top middle of your shoe, or wherever you’d like. It would be cute off to the side even. I glued mine fairly close to the edge of the opening. Use your clothespin to set it in place while it dries. E-6000 glue kind of takes a while.
On your two pieces of fabric, fold the long sides in 1/4” and then under again 1/4” and sew.
Now fold one of the short ends under 1/4”, then over 1/2” (I just liked how it looked better with a bigger seam, but you can just do it how we did on the longer sides). Sew. Do this on all the shorter sides.
Fold the short end a couple times like an accordion and stick through the loop after it has dried. Adjust to look like a bow.
Wasn’t that easy?
