Folk Chic Shoe-Shoes




Introduction: Folk Chic Shoe-Shoes

These relaxed booties will see you through festival field and highstreet tarmac.

Step 1: Materials

You're going to need:
wooden buttons,
vintage fabric ribbon of three sizes,
shoes to decorate,
strong fabric glue, I'm trying out a new brand since it's become difficult to get my usual.

Step 2: Tools

You'll also need:
Needle you don't mind getting glue on,
mini clamps or bulldog clips.

Step 3: Cut Your Ribbon to Size

There is no exact art to this. I used squares of one ribbon and a long thin strip of another. I then frayed the edge of the larger ribbon and loosely stitched one side of the thinner ribbon to bunch it into a semi circle.

Step 4: Create Half Bows

I applied glue to one side of each square and then bunched it together to form fan like shapes. I used the clamps to hold them until almost dry.

Step 5: Cut and Glue Your Hessian

Stuff your shoe with whatever you have to hand to simulate a foot. Then lay your hessian over the shoe and roughly cut the shape you need out.
Glue the hessian on and neaten up the edges as you want.

Step 6:

Assemble your shape on the shoe. I added a third strip of ribbon to disguise an edge.

Step 7:

Pop the button in the middle of the shape.

Step 8: Done!

Enjoy your shoes
