Faça você mesma - Tutorial sapatos

Não traduzi, porque o tutorial é super simples [e meu inglês também, não é lá essas coisas!]. Se tiverem alguma dificuldade usem o "tio" Google Translate. 
Usei uma técnica parecida para renovar um dos meus. Ficou bem legal!

*Before I get started on this tutorial, I just want to say this has nothing to do with the most recent tragedy in Colorado. I have always been a big fan of comics, my favorite comic being of course  Batman. I missed Comic-Con in San Diego, CA this year, I decided to create this DIY project for the opening of Batman The Dark Knight Rises. The horrific event that took place on July 20, 2012 in Aurora Colorado was absolutely sickening. My heart goes out to all the victims and families involved in the shooting and this post does not encourage nor glorify the pain endured from the innocent lives lost and injured. It could have happened to anyone; a friend, a family member, yourself. At first I wasn't sure if I would post this tutorial but I don't think a fictional character that has been around for years should be at fault. Sadly, this world is just getting worse, you can't even enjoy a movie and popcorn anymore.

What you will need:
  • Fabric 
  • Shoes
  • Mod Podge
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Large Ziplock Bag
  • Pins
  • Sharpie Marker
  • Sponge Brush
  • Finishing Spray
Remove any accents that may come attached to your high heel. If you are using used shoes, be sure to clean the surface with a damp wash cloth to remove any dirt or debris. Place the plastic bag over your shoe. (It helps to cut the bag for more control) Next pin the bag to shoe and outline the shoe with a sharpie marker. 
Once you have your outlined pattern, remove pins and carefully cut around the lines. Don't make your pattern perfectly fitted, it's best to leave some slack. Make four cut outs with the same pattern, but remember to flip the pattern 2x for the other side of shoe as this will be a different shape. 

Next brush a thin layer of mod podge onto your surface, leaving the back of shoe without mod podge. Carefully place your fabric over the wet glue, making sure to align the fabric to the shoe starting from base to top. After fabric is in place, smooth out by gently pressing down. Add another thin layer of mod podge over settled fabric. You should have a flap of fabric on top. 

After your mod podge is dry, trim the access fabric around shoe. Be patient, this takes time and you don't want to cut too much! Cut slits in the corners that do not bend on their own. This will allow you to tuck the access fabric to the inside of shoe.

Glue the fabric on back of shoe with tacky glue and secure. Fold remaining flaps of fabric and glue to the inside of shoe. Glue all other missed edges or cracks. Trim and glue as needed, this is more using your best judgment, you want your finished product to look clean. After you are satisfied, spray with a craft finishing spray. Attach a bow (I used a foam yellow heart and a piece of fabric for the center of heart) this step is optional. 

You are done! MAGIC!

My fiance wanted some too! ;)
