DIY Pretty Shoes

I could hardly wait to try out this insole refashion when I saw it over at Grosgrain.  She came up with the idea to replace your insoles with pretty fabric after buying some shoes at a thrift store.  I must say the one thing that keeps me from buying shoes second hand is if their insoles are dirty.  I'm a bit of a germaphobe.  Really it was only just in the last couple years that I would buy used shoes at all.  Anyway, I'm getting off track.  Check out my new insoles.

I've actually done a lot more than just these two pair.  It's super simple and I had all the supplies I needed already (I used the spray glue option she mentions in the tutorial).  I think I will even be doing this to brand new shoes, its just too cute!  Plus next time I go to someone's house that I have to take my shoes off they will see how cute it is too! So it's not just for me, although it is a bit like wearing cute undies, makes you feel special even if your the only one who knows it's there.

If your looking to see other things that inspire me I just recently started a board over at Pintrest (thanks to a certain reader in a gorilla suit, I'm now addicted!).  I'm working on collecting ideas for Hudson's 4th birthday party (this summer).  It's going to be camping themed so you will see a section for that.  Otherwise it's a place where I will collect everything that inspires me to create the ideas I share here with you.  Stop on over!

  1. These are fabulous; thanks for sharing! Do you mind sharing what the brand the 1st pair is? My sister and I have been looking at a 2nd pair of "everyday" shoes to add to the journey of "My Sister's Shoes" and those are what we had in mind!

  2. I totally agree with the idea of buying used shoes because well ewww! This is the way to cover up that and they look like a new pair. What a great idea!
