ModPodge SHOES...with a lil SURPRISE.

I had to try it! I saw THESE shoes and was like..."REALLY? YOU CAN DO THAT?" And then another blogger buddy made THESE, and I was like..."I've GOT to get on the ball!"

I'm OH SO HAPPY WITH THESE!

SO HERE WE GO! An ugly pair of flats that just aren't working for me anymore...I dont think they ever did actually. The main reason being:
THEY'RE TOO SMALL!
So I cut off the back...hee hee.


And I was finished!
Just Kidding...

I took some old Zibbra Print fabric from decorating my daughter's room and modpodged it on strip by strip. (About 3 per shoe) depending on if your fabric is continuous or not.
I let it dry over night before taking an exacto knife around the sole of the shoe to get off any ugly excess fabric.

I took a black elastic and some black material to make a ruffle heel, to keep my feet in place.
I hand sewed the back ruffle on. Make sure you sew them STRAIGHT UP so that they dont slide down when you wear them (Trial n Error)
Hmmm..they're still missing something...



awww.....
What do you think?
I throughly enjoy them! They dont hurt my heels anymore!

These are super cute! Do you think it would work if you didn't put the straps on the back? I have some that are too small, also, but I was thinking that you could still do this without putting the straps on the back...
