I came across this SUPER CUTE pair of vintage shoes at the Goodwill yesterday. I LOVE THEM. They are a tiny bit small, so I was going to sell them ... but ... yuck-O! Look at those gross sole inserts!
Here's a little crafty trick to re-furbish some old shoes!
Remove the nasty inserts and set aside. Wash hands!
Trace the soles on some pretty material of your choosing. I liked this vintage tapestry material I had laying around. Maybe too much tapestry, but whatever.
Cut out around your tracings. (I like to cut off the toe area because it gives the toes a bit more room to wiggle.)
Put some glue (any sort of craft glue will work) on the top of the soles and insert your newly made inserts!
TA-DA!! Refurbished shoes!
You can also do this on new shoes if you just want some pretty material inserts :)
