Fashion DIY: New Old Shoes – Spiced With Borders

Recently in a fabric shop, I found countless beautiful braids with fringes, pom-pom, lace, flower, and animal designs. I immediately thought that I could tinker them into something beautiful, and bought some of them. What has become of it, look at it here: Shoe inspired by the Louis Vuitton „Spicy series“. I have chosen colors that I can combine well with the contents of my wardrobe. By the way, this DIY project is best for strappy sandals.

Material And Tools – For This DIY Project You Need

  1. Bobble-border
  2. Leo-border (or similar, depending on your taste)
  3. Fringed border
  4. Lace-border
  5. Scissors
  6. Hot glue gun
  7. Sewing kit

DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions

DIY Step 1

First, mark the spot where the border will be added later. With long straps, it is helpful to draw small arrows with the orientation of the fringes as well.

DIY Step 2

Now cut the various borders to the desired length.

DIY Step 3

Sew the bobble-border and the fringe-border together.

DIY Step 4

Now, with the hot glue gun, put a thin layer of glue on the border and (a little bit shifted) on the straps.

IMPORTANT: If too much glue, it can happen that the border will not stick to the shoe, therefore prefer to use less adhesive.

DIY Step 5

Press the border firmly on the shoe.

DIY Step 6

Apply to the lace-border with a thin layer of glue.

DIY Step 7

Again, press on.

DIY Step 8

Now stick the Leo-border to the front strap.

And glue the lace-border over it. DONE!
