Baby needs a new pair of shoes

When I first signed up for Pinterest (Do you not just love Pinterest? I am a Pinaholic! There, I've said it! If you have not yet made the plunge - I highly recomend it!) I found a tutorial about Mod Podged shoes and immediately pinned it - one of my very first pins.

Later I came across a cheep pair of shoes I had ordered on line and was not crazy about but for the price I paid it was not worth sending them back. I remembered the tutorial I had posted and picked up a bottle of outdoor Mod Podge at JoAnn's. I set it aside with the shoes and every time I looked at them I would think about my fabric stash and try to make a decision on which fabric to cover them with.

Fast forward a couple of months - I decided on this beautiful Stampin' Up! fabric in a trendy gold and white pattern with petite navy blue dots (remembering I have a cute pair of navy blue Capri's that would look great with it) - Motivation! Luv it!

I gathered my supplies -
Mod Podge (outdoor variety)
foam brush
craft knife

I've added a few pictures of the process - To see the full tutorial click Here

I cut tabs around the inside curve - this makes it easier to fold under.

Didn't they turn out sweet? It took me less than an hour to complete this process and then I let them dry overnight - Seriously! it was pretty quick.

I wore them today to the Stampin' Up! convention and they held up great. I Now have to find some more cheep shoes to transform. Just think - You could add jewels, pearls, lace, trim, buttons, tassels - The posibilities are endless. And did I mention that when you get tired of them you can re-do them.

 The Stampin' Up! fabric I used is  #126894 Comfort Cafe - includes 3 extra-wide fat quarters (37" x 18")  in 3 coordinated designs (One of which I used Here for my Knot-so-hard flip flops) can be purchased along with other Stampin' Up! products Here.

 I've now completed approximately 10-12 of the projects I've found on Pinterest - I've been so inspired and I'm pretty sure it's still cheeper than therapy.

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you.
