Here we present how you can make your own hounds-tooth (hounds-tooth is a two tone textile pattern characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes, often in black and white) shoes with so few investments.
You will need:
– a pair of pumps with moderate pointy toe;
– a cotton hounds-tooth printed fabric;
– fabric glue;
– crafts sponge brush;
Directions: Be careful with the directions of the print. Cut out two pentagon shapes adjusted for heels. Using the sponge brush, put a thick layer of textile glue on the heel, then place the printed fabric on it and smooth out. Let dry, and once it is completely dried out, trim the edges leaving about 1/8″ around each of the sides. For the toes, cut two large rectangles from your fabric, but do not forget to leave ample room for error on all sides. Decide on the direction of your print, like this you will remember to match the other shoe too. Now repeat the moves you made for the heel. Add more glue to the edges and toe, fold and glue down each side/edge to prevent fraying. Do this around all of your edges, just to make sure. To hide the seam of the heel, just make a ribbon and glue it on top of it, and glue it to the inner side of the heel for an extra support. We hope you manage this, and you get to enjoy every step, especially the result of your work!
