Transforming old shoes into new ones ;)


Transform your old shoes in to season's hottest heels! follow these steps :)

Step 1  

Buy some material, such as a glitter fabric .You will also need clingfilm, sticky tape, scissors, leather adhesive and string.

Step 2  
Cover the heel in clingfilm to make a template for the glitter fabric. Then cover the whole heel area with sticky tape.

Step 3  
Making sure that the whole heel is covered, draw around it with a marker pen - this will act as a pattern for the glitter fabric.

Step 4     
Using a stanley knife, score the clingfilm down the back of the shoe and open it up. This will act as your pattern.

Step 5   
Cut out the pattern and use it as a stencil on the glitter fabric. Draw around the stencil, cut it out and check it fits.

Step 6  
Apply leather adhesive to the heel. Wait until the glue goes tacky to the touch.

Step 7 
Stick the fabric to the heel and trim off any excess pieces.

Step 8  
Tie some string around the heel to secure the fabric in place. Leave it to dry for five to 10 minutes.
