Fancy Feet


  • Fabric
  • Disappearing-ink marker
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • Needle and thread
  • Hot glue
  • Artificial flowers


  1. Step 1

    Lay fabric, right side up, over toe area.

  2. Step 2

    With a disappearing-ink marker, trace along shoe seams. Cut out.

  3. Step 3

    Completely cover the toe area with fabric glue. Carefully lay fabric on top, gently pulling it tightly across so it doesn't pucker.

  4. Step 4

    To replace standard laces, cut contrasting fabric and adhesive interfacing 1 inch wide.

  5. Step 5

    Put fabric on interfacing, triple-fold lengthwise; press with a dry iron.

  6. Step 6

    Snip 2 artificial flowers (we used silk chrysanthemums, but other fabric flowers are fine, too) just below the bloom, and hot-glue one to each toe. With a needle and thread, hand stitch the blossom to the shoe to make it extra secure.
