With a disappearing-ink marker, trace along shoe seams. Cut out.
Completely cover the toe area with fabric glue. Carefully lay fabric on top, gently pulling it tightly across so it doesn't pucker.
To replace standard laces, cut contrasting fabric and adhesive interfacing 1 inch wide.
Put fabric on interfacing, triple-fold lengthwise; press with a dry iron.
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.
