AFRICAN FABRIC; SHOES & GIVEAWAY


YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING


OK lets go over this really quick. so its shoes,fabric, glue gun, mod podge, REMEMBER you can still use mode podge for making the whole shoe because it is also a glue, the reason i use the hot glue is i think it will hold the fabric even when it rains, i don’t really trust mod podge to hold the fabric as much.

 fabric bought at Joann’s i think its 1 and a half yard for $16 something but i had like a 50% off coupon so i wasn’t angry this time i was happy. 😉


 shoes i bought for $9.99

NEED I SAY MORE, LOL I DON’T THINK SO,SO LETS DO THIS;


First i cut my fabric into strips, squares or any shapes you want, remember this should be fun. so to kick off start at the heal of the shoe and go up, i think when you start at the heal of your shoe you get the ideas of how your shoe is made and how to cover it nicely and end up having a pro look.

see what i mean, you kind of like get a hang of it and that way its easy and quick, which saves time also, keep going around the shoe with the hot glue and those shapes you made from the fabric, this is not a science project mistakes can be fixed,don’t be afraid to make mistakes


well excuse my pj’s i usually do this during night time when i cant sleep, God knows why its hard for me to just go to sleep just like everyone…

Now this was even tricky for me i was like what am i going to do at the cycle to i can have a smooth hem that curves inside the shoe, i tried to just force it in but it showed those pleats and i don’t want to see pleats so i took my scissors.

And i made little cuts like darts i think that’s what is called ;( i should improve my English vocabulary, anyway after making this cuts its easier o hem the fabric inside the shoe very easily and smoothly.

closer look to the cuts



BOOOOOOM just like that the first shoe is done


NOW THIS IS IMPORTANT: when you feel tired and out of energy please do take a break neh




After a little short break keep doing the same steps you did with the first shoe


When you are done your shoes should look like this, u don’t have to have the same fabric but what i am saying is they should be covered in fabric


Lastly apply Mod Podge to cover the whole shoe, i use the glossy mod podge as it always makes the shoes shine and it also prevents the fabric from being worn out, i really do love my mod podge lol and it doesn’t smell bad,it smells really good.


I had too much time and i ended up making the clutch bag, earrings and a bangle to match the shoes.

 THE FINAL LOOK
