I bougth a pair of plain boring black flats and modified them with fabric [please excuse my gramatical errors as my first language is spanish] here's a description with pictures of the process.



1. that's the shoe I bought it for $8 bucks at a local store.

2. cut the sole off with an exacto knife. [didn't exactly used the correct materials]

3.cut off some taping it came with.

4. tore the whole thing apart along with the insole.

5. traced a pattern of the shoe on the fabric.


6. glued the fabric to the shoe.

7. top-stitched the fabric to tuck it inside the shoe.


8. stitched the back of the shoe so it' a continous piece.

9. sewed the little backpiece back on.

10. stitched some taping [is that the name for it?]
 
11. glued the sole back on [again used the wrong materials, it was all I had, but hey it's pretty strong held]

12. tada!!! finished result, and now to decorate with some applique.

please express your opinion and ways to improve it.

OMG!!!  Shoe fetishists with a fabric addiction will go nuts over this!!!  You're brilliant!  What kind of glue and sewing machine needle did you use?  I'm guessing that using an old shoe with a crease at the instep wouldn't work.  *wildly applauding*

Wow....  that is awesome.  Just like disorientedx said- if I did that, mine wouldn't look like a shoe either.  LOL
