Aleene's Fabric Embellished Shoes
  1. Remove the shoelaces and fold down the sides to expose as much of the tongues as possible. Lay a piece of freezer paper under the tongue and trace around it to create a pattern. Make sure to leave an extra 1/4" at toe of each pattern piece.
  2. Lay pattern on fabric and cut out.
  3. Spray the backside of "toe" end of each fabric piece with Fabric Fusion Pump Spray and fold over to create a finished edge. Allow to dry.
  4. Fit each piece of fabric over tongue and trim any overlap at bottom of tongue where the fabric meets the rubber toe cap.
  5. Spray back of fabric piece with Fabric Fusion Pump Spray, and align finished edge (toe end) up against the rubber toe cap. Smooth remaining fabric over tongue. Allow to dry. Repeat on second shoe.
  6. Trim any remaining excess fabric.
  7. Repeat process for second pair of shoes.
