How to make oilcloth-covered shoes

I love these oilcloth covered sneakers! I’m a sucker for cheap shoes. These canvas sneakers were $5 and served as the perfect base for a little oilcloth magic! Here are the steps to make your own!

What you need to make oilcloth-covered sneakers:

Blank canvas sneakers
tracing paper, chalk
Trim, buttons


Stuff the shoe with fabric or tissue to make the top firm. Place the tracing paper over the top of the shoe and rub the chalk over it to create an impression of the seam.
 Do this for each shoe, and then cut out the oilcloth to fit the pattern.
 You’ll need to stuff the shoe again to make it firm.

Apply the glue and apply the oilcloth to the top of the shoe. Hold down all the edges until it is sealed. Add trim around the edges, buttons and Tulip® 3D Fashion Paint on the back part of the shoe.

 Aren’t they cute? You can use any kind of fabric to cover your shoes! I also painted the inside of the shoes too, they needed it…
