- Flat Closed Toe Shoes
- Light-Weight Cotton Fabric (less than 1/2 yard)
- Foam Paintbrush
- Non-Stick Scissors
- Thin Soutache Trim (enough to fit around each shoe)

- Clean the shoes of any dirt or oils. Remove any embellishments.
- Cut a square of fabric to fit each shoe.
- To figure out the amount needed place one shoe on a piece of scrap fabric, wrap the fabric around the shoe so that it goes all the way around the sole, heel and toe. Trim the fabric to make a pattern. Add two inches to the height and width of the pattern. Use the widened pattern to cut the squares for each shoe.
- Apply fabric Mod Podge to the toe and down one side of the shoe.
- Place the fabric evenly over the shoe. Press the fabric into the Mod Podge and smooth the fabric with your finger.
- Use your nail to push the fabric into the seam near the sole.
- Continue to add Mod Podge to the shoe until you get to the back seam.
- Trim the edge of the fabric to match the back seam.
- Apply Mod Podge to the other side of the shoe.
- When you get to the heel, overlap the fabric over the seam, trim the edge straight and seal with Mod Podge.
- Remove the sealed open area of the shoe by trimming away the fabric and clipping the curves.
- Use Mod Podge to glue the clipped flaps to the inside of the shoe.
- Use fabric glue to attach rhinestones to the toe area and soutache trim to the shoe to heel seam.
