I used $5 canvas shoes from Walmart, half of a fat quater that was cut from a vintage sheet (scored off of Etsy), Mod Podge Matte, and an exacto knife. You simply apply a layer of Mod Podge, lay a piece of fabric down and then apply another layer of Mod Podge. Once the area you're working on is dry, take the exacto knife and cut away at the seams. It takes a while to get the whole shoe covered but I love the end result. I applied several layers of glue to build of a hard finish and then let them dry overnight before putting the laces back in. Don't worry if your cutting around the seams isn't perfect, no one will be looking that closely.
I absolutely love the way they turned out! These could be made in so many ways. I covered the entire shoe with fabric but you could do them up like saddle shoes, a collage/patchwork look, or cut out the flowers and just do those. The Mod Podge made them nice and sturdy and I seriously doubt I'll have any wear issues with them. However, Mod Podge isn't waterproof so I probably won't be splashing in any puddles with these. ;)
The only thing I'm not crazy about is the way the original laces look with them. I'll probably swap them out for some lace ribbon at some point. I'm ready to break out a sundress and wear these babies out!
