6/30 | DIY Fabric Accent Sneakers

I love adding a personal touch to my outfits more than anything. DIY is the perfect way for me to do this! Today I am spicing up a pair of my sneakers with this DIY Fabric Accent Sneakers craft. I’m so excited to show you all at home how I did it. I think you are going to adore these DIY Fabric Accent Sneakers! This is a great way to give new life to an otherwise boring pair of old sneakers. It’s also a great way for you to show your personality with a touch of fabric that represents your style. This DIY shoe idea is one for the books, and one i’m sure you’ll want to make right now.

You will need: a pair of Converse type sneakers | coordinating fabric | Americana Decou-Page | Paint Brush | Scissors

Remove the laces. Then, cover the entire tongue of the sneaker with a generous coat of Decou-Page. Decou-Page works as a glue, sealer and finish. In this project we are using it as a glue.

Cut out a piece of fabric slightly bigger than the tongue of your sneaker and place it down on the still wet Decou-Page covered tongue. You will want to cut the bottom in a curve and aline that first. Be sure that there are no bubbles and that it is laid on there flat.
Wrap the excess fabric around to the inside. Adhere it down with more Decou-Page. Repeat on both shoes. Let them dry completely before re-lacing.
I am in love with my new shoes! I love the pop of pink with the turquoise sneakers. You can use this tutorial and switch it up to fit your own style. These shoes are going to be perfect for summer- I think they will go great with some denim shorts! What pattern fabric would you accent your sneakers with?

  1. I love this idea! Will the fabric come off if the shoes get wet or if you wash them? I can’t wait to try this!

  2. I like the general idea, but not how messy the inside of the tongue is. Not professional looking at all.
