Upstate, South C...
I had to try recovering a pair of shoes after I saw Alison Dahl’s tutorial. Had to.
It was a really fun process. Not too difficult, though it did take a little bit of finesse to keep it neat. I followed Alison’s instructions exactly, except I wrapped the fabric under the shoe and glued it, and then cut it with a razor blade later on when it was dry. I liked the way the wedge looked with the fabric turned under the bottom edge. This makes me think about all sorts of other things that can be covered… I will definitely do this again. There is more on my blog if you are interested.
