DIY: Fabric Covered Flats

With the weather warmin up and the sun coming out I felt uber inspired to take a boring pair of black flats and give them life with bright polka dotted fabric!  You can make them too!

Let's get started!

Gather these supplies:
-pair of flats
-fabric of choice
-mod podge
-fabric glue/ spray adhesive

First cut out four pieces of fabric for each shoe: 2 long rectangles for the sides and one piece for the toe and one for the heel...

Now iron around the edges of each piece..

Using fabric glue and spray adhesive fit your fabric around the shoe
I outlined the fabric with the fabric glue and sprayed the adhesive onto the shoe and pressed fabric against the shoe

If desired, to give the fabric extra protection, cover with mod podge
After they are dry they are ready to sport around town!

Happy Creating!
Love, T


  1. This is such a good idea! Does the Mod Podge make the shoes uncomfortable though?

  2. Those are so cute! I want to that, but with glitter. I'm just afraid it won't stay.

  3. they are slightly stiff with the mod podge but I think the next pair I make I am going to hot glue the fabric on the inside and not use mod podge:)

  4. They came out awesome! So easy.
