I don’t know if you guys remember my marbled slip on tutorial I wrote way back sometime in March. I loved this DIY. I loved the shoes even more. So much in fact that I’ve worn the marbling right off them! To be fair, they have gone through a wash a couple of times (Paris, whilst lovely was very poluted) and the marbling has turned into these paint splatters that just look like I’ve been redecorating. I figured they needed a new lease of life and I also needed to use up some of my fabric stash. (Remember that? I’m still trying!) The result? Leopard Print Slip Ons! My new fave.
Leopard Print Fabric (the link is for FQ amounts. Measure your shoes to make sure you get enough fabric to cover them)
1. Stuff the shoe to give you a sturdy surface to work with. Newspaper/scrap paper will do the job.
2. Measure out more than enough fabric to cover the front panel. Spread Mod Podge over the panel evenly.
3. Press the fabric over the panel working out any air bubbles and making sure all the sides are covered.
4. Rough cut off the excess fabric and leave to dry.
5. Once the glue is dry use the stronger glue to seal the edges.
6. After this glue has dried use a sharp craft knife to accurately cut the fabric to size. Fold the excess under the tab and glue in place.
7. Hold the fabric in place with pegs whilst it dries to prevent it shifting.
8. Repeat these steps with the second panel.
9. Cover the whole shoe with a layer of Mod podge to seal and protect the fabric.
