New beginnings... new shoes!

13 comments
Erm, not exactly new shoes, but revamped enough to make me ecstatic!  I will now have more time to think about creative environmental things other than work, but my hubby asked whether I can help him instead....think, think, think. 




Anyway, back to my shoes.  I think everyone in the creative blogosphere are revamping their shoes and saw a couple of lovely ones - painted, decoupaged, sprayed, embellished!  But then I was wondering, I really need to fix the insides of my shoes. They look lovely on the outside (maybe a tad dirty) but they're getting worn on the inside - maybe due to the hard skin on the sides and soles of my feet. With the "new" lining  the shoes are more comfortable and I'm loving the minty colour, but I'm hitting myself for making the linking a tad too big - that's why you're looking at lining "cleavage"!

Scraps of jean fabric, glue and acrylic paint come in handy!






Hopefully these shoes will last a little bit longer ! :-)

  1. Thank you so much for this tip! I actually have a pair of shoes that has gone through several trips to the shoe repair shop already because I love it so much I don't want to let it go. But the insides are getting worn. I hope I get to try your tip this weekend :)

    and I love the new color you picked for your shoes!

    1. Thanks, Janelle. I've had this pair for a long time but they look perfect on the outside, it's just inside is worn out. I thought the colour would be a minty green but this is just as good :-)

    1. Thanks, Laura. I just read that I would need to seal in the acrylic paint with Modge Podge or gloss spray.

  4. I commented on the refashion coop too. I love the shoes! I'm wondering what you used to glue the denim into the inside.

    1. Hi Kathy, I used fabric glue but I think a hot glue gun or craft glue could work too :-)
