DIY : Espandrilles Reborn!

Hello diyers!!

While organizing my closet I came across this really old pair of espadrilles...I was ready to give them away and suddenly it hit me! They are the must have shoes for the summer!! They can be worn as beach shoes, in the evening, and they are comfortable through the heat of the day. Also perfect for trips and long walks. I wanted to change them and add some color so I used some scrap Ikat fabric that I have kept...The result is a beautiful almost a brand new pair of shoes. I am wearing them everyday! 

So before tossing your old shoes give them a second might have a new pair in a few minutes!

This is how my old pair of espadrilles looked like.

All you need is your scrap fabric, scissors and glue for fabrics. I also used some gold cord for replacing the old ribbons.

Place the fabric on the shoe and secure it with some pins. Cut the shape that you will glue later.

Spread the glue on the surface and adjust the fabric that you have cut. Use the back point of your scissors to press the fabric on and wait for it to dry. It takes only 10 minutes.You are done!!

I added a new gold cord and some tassels on the ankle side. I love their new boho chic look!

See you soon!
