long live my old shoes

Sweet friends,
I just saved my old favorite shoes!. It has a very sweet, floral fabric in-soles, which I love. If you know how to decoupage, you could save a million things, I tell ya. Made me wondered why haven't I done this sooner??. 

Sad, sad shoes.

I saw on Pinterest, a funky altered shoes recently. Inspired, I set to work on my dear shoes :). Just a few coats of mod podge and a piece of decorative tissue paper, they become new again :). Took me a mere 15 minutes to do this.

Getting ready for the make over. 

And here's the after; grungy look.
They're back on business :).

I'm like a mad scientist now, looking for things to decoupage on, LOL. To save, I mean. I have yet to try them on, maybe I'll wear them tomorrow :). A walk to the Orchid Garden nearby. See if they can take the rain. Have anyone tried this with fabric??. Do share :). See you soon. HUGS.


  1. Great makeover. Yes, I've recently decoupaged a pair of beach slippers. Will upload them later. But then I am not too sure I want to wear them. lol!

  2. I would have loved those shoes too-Darling!Fun project even if you never wear them,I would at least wear them around town or as slippers.Denise

  3. LOL....only you, chica, only you!! May I be so bold as to say, "NICE SAVE!" I'm really curious to know if they held up in the rain. I LOVE the new design to them. I never would have guessed that pattern with the polka dots, but's actually perfect. Very fun, very effective and get to continue to use your cherished pair of shoes. :)

  4. Love how the snippets of tissue have given your shoes a new and fun life! I'm anxious to hear how they hold up in the rain :)
