Shoe Redo: Red Ruffle Flat

May 18, 2010

These flats are just so 'flattering' for this rainy but green spring weather. I can't stop oogling them.

Fabric (enough to cover your shoes)
Mod Podge
10"x10" piece of red fabric
Brush for glue
Razor blade or exacto knife
Hot glue

Step 1: Removed the baubles from the shoes.

Step 2: Removed the vinyl bias tape. If you left it on it would be too bulky when you add your own bias tape.

Step 3: Follow steps 1-12 of last week's shoe redo

One thing I did differently was that I added pins at the place were the shoe meets so the sole so that the fabric would stick to the shoe.

Step 4: Make little ruffles. Cut one 6"x2" piece of red fabric and hem one end over 1/4" on three sides.

Then sew a long stitch across the bottom and gather.

Cut another 5"x1.5" piece of red fabric and hem one end over
1/4" on three sides.

Then sew a long stitch across the bottom and gather.

Step 5: Hot glue it to the tip of the shoe as shown in the picture to the left.

Step 6: Add a red bias tape trim as shown in step 13 of last week's shoe redo.

Step 7: Cover fabric with a coat of modpodge. And let dry.

Hi! Could you share the name of that fabric? I really love it - not only for shoes, but wallpaper, pillows, Lord only knows what else. It's crisp & perfect!

Those would be completely ruined in the rain or even dirt, right? Do you simply wear these "in the office"? Or only wear them once?
