Let me explain my processes of transformation. We will once again be using the fabulous Mod Podge along with some old fabric I had lying around (same as the books in my previous blog), sponge brush, scissors, sharp razor blade, lace ribbon and pearl pendant like decor I picked up from my local crafts store (you guessed it, Michaels).
First I cut out a big enough section of my first fabric for both of the flats.
Then I cut the fabric in half for each flat.
I then wrapped the fabric around the flat tight and held it so I can make the whole for the inside with my razor.
Then out came "The Podge". One side at a time I applied the podge and glued the fabric down. I did not put any on the tip yet.
I then applied pressure and once it was done drying I began to trim the bottom so the fabric would align properly with the flat.
I applied the podge onto the fabric to create a more durable texture and seal.(would not recommend putting podge over the fabric on the inner part of the shoe. It makes it uncomfortable against your foot).
Next I podged the tip of the flat and applied my other fabric. I then cut the lace ribbon to fit across the two fabrics giving a neat finish and used the podge to glue it on (do not podge on top of lace except at very bottoms).
Once it was finished drying I then trimmed the fabric along the bottom to align with the flat and podge the edges down.
Finally, I made a bow out of the second fabric and held it together with my pearl pendant then hot glued it onto the top of the shoe.
