    Hello World
  • Cut out enough fabric to generously cover the shoe piece you are covering. Apply mod podge to shoe. Position fabric over shoe. Press fabric into glue and smooth out any wrinkles.
  • Then go ahead to trim all excess fabrics away, leaving about ¼ of excess fabric all around. Besides, you will need to cut into the fabric vertically to get fabric to lay flat around curves. Tuck excess fabric inside of shoe and mod podge in place.
  • Also use an x-acto knife to trim fabric very close to sole edge. Seal it all together with a coat of mod podge and allow to dry.
  • Then use clothespins or paperclips to hold the inner fabric in place while it dries.
