Ok well awhile ago I made a post about making the converse boots.
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=329292.0 Now since I'm on spring break, (woot!) and I have money to buy fabric, I have some questions that might help me considerably before I jump into this. Basically I am combining these two tutorials. http://www.chezlin.com/2008/09/oh-my-god-shoes/
By ripping out the high top chuck I have and making the measurements with that fabric and my own legs. Then attaching the fabric pieces to the chucks. My question is will shoe glue be enough to keep the fabric on the shoes or should I keep like a small trail of fabric on the chucks and sew the pieces on as best I can and use glue the as further reinforcement? As if thats not enough my second question is about this

These shoes use zippers and I'm already a bit worried about the boots being tight and me and zippers have a love/hate relationship. So would I be making my life horribly difficult if I substitute that piece with elastic? Just by at first sewing up 2 or 3 inches the folding fabric and continue sewing with the elastic in the middle? Yeah I am an in an out sewer, so I have just never really done anything with elastic so I don't know if its evil. lol Any thoughts, critisms or hints, and tip are greatly appreciated. If you read this whole thing bless you for hanging in there Smiley
