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
- Leo-border (or similar, depending on your taste)
- Fringed border
- Hot glue gun
- 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!
