Description

Inspired by Alison Dahl’s DIY instructions on how to cover shoes and Burdastyle user Camelias + Crinoline’s project description and blog.
An old pair of black mid high pumps with a broken strap and a remnant of Liberty Print Strawberry Thief fabric in a magenta colourshift.
I made these shoes as part of a shared “Make Do and Mend” craft day where there was a pot luck high tea and champagne cocktails! All in all, a very successful Rainy Melbourne Day!
I blogged about which steps we skipped and how we “rejigged” the instructions!

    They look great. I love the fabric you used and how you placed it so the toes of both shoes were the same.

    Totally gorgeous, don’t think I’d be brave enough to attempt it myself though

      You should totally try them jennieuk! we had non-sewers/crafters at the the table and they got into once you just pick a good random patterned fabric and dive straight in.
