Shoe Redo

I love how these shoe's turned out and so does my daughter! (they are her's).



These were some cute little shoes that my niece grew out of and my sister handed down to my daughter.
I love hand me downs but some times they need a little redo to make them like new again.

Here is what you need to redo a pair:

Modge Podge they have an outdoor modge podge but I just used the regular what I had.
Small Foam Paint Brush
Fabric you will only need a small amount.
X-Acto Knife that has a very sharp tip.


To start off I peeled, cut, tore off the existing fabric that was on the edge because it was already tearing off.

Add alot of Modge Podge where you will be putting the fabric working on one side at a time.

Cut a long strip of fabric that is wide enough to cover the shoe.

Starting at the heel wrap the fabric around the shoe cutting off the excess fabric as you go.


When you get back to the heel place modge podge on the edge of your fabric and fold the edge over for a clean look modge podge over the begining edge. Now let them dry.


Sorry same picture ths is where you take the x-acto knife and cut the fabric on the creases where the sides meet the top of the shoe and the bottom.

Apply a good amount of modge podge on top to seal the fabric let dry repeat if needed. Make sure to wipe off the excess modge podge on the bottom of the shoe and anywhere else you don't need it.


For the flower I just made a fabric flower attached to an alligator clip so it's removable.


Cute practically new pair of shoes!

Really cute shoes! I actually like them a lot better now. They're so summer and the fabric is perfect!

Great idea! They look like totally different shoes now, fun and summery! I was blessed with hand-me downs as a kid too, and my Mom would always do something to make it a bit different and special for me :D

Turned out so so cuuute! I'm remembering all the cute sandals I've thrown away recently that I totally could have kept and updated! :(

Sheri@childmade.com said...

Those are so cute! Not only did you salvage a pair of shoes that would have likely gone in the trash, you made them more adorable after! Well done! And wouldn't they be cute if you did them to match a skirt or blouse? Just great! Thanks for sharing -- I've posted a link. I would love if you joined my link party some time!
