I started with these:
Then I looked down and realized I looked like I should be wearing a sweater with hand-knitted kittens on it.
So, the refashioning begins.
-hot glue gun (of course)
-spare bit of fabric (I got a pack of these weird 2" wide fabric strips from JoAnn that I thought were fat quarters....they're pretty long, a yard or something, but you probably won't need the whole thing)
-ugly sandals in need of some TLC
-a good pair of scissors
It was a fairly easy process for impatient me. I glued and pasted, pasted and glued. And occasionally cut away the extra fabric surrounding the straps.
|Fabric is down! How exciting :D|
|I wrapped some fabric around the middle elastically straps but they turned out too bulky so I took them off again.|
|WEE! One shoe down, one to go!|
|SHOES ARE DONE! YEAAAH!|
|Ballerina pose. Channeling Black Swan just in time for the Oscars (well, in a few weeks....)|
A variation on this project would be to glue fabric down as a fancy new insole. There's a great tutorial for that here.
now go forth and refashion, young DIY-ers!
