Sometimes I think I am insane  Tongue I wanted my weddingshoes in the same fabric as my dress. So I got some shoes to cover up and mod podge. This is how they looked at first :



I tried it with the mod podge but the result was too dark so I had to come up with a different solution.


I made a pattern and covered the shoes the same way an ironing board is covered. By pulling a thread at the edges, it sorta stays into place. Afterwards I secured it better with sewing and glueing.




They looked nice when dried, but to make sure it would not fall appart I covered the bottom with liquid rubber. Here is where I messed up.  I had put the shoes upside down to dry. But because I used too much rubber, it dripped and stained the front tips. I ended up sewing on an extra piece to cover the stains.

Here's the result :
