  • How to make a pair of embellished shoes. Diy: Custom Summer Shoes Embroidery - Step 1
    Step 1

    Sketch your pattern

    You can skip this step if you want to make it exactly as per my pattern. But I would recommend it if you would like to try other colours or stitches.

    Following your pattern but also your imagination and creativity, thread your needle with one of your colours and make all the pattern items in this particular colour.

    My pattern is made of very simple stitches for which I do not think any details are needed as long as you know how to make one simple stitch.

    Repeat with each colour.

    Inside the shoes, you will end up with many threads. To hide them, use some fabric stickers.

    Place the sticker inside and remove the protective film. Start from the bottom and cut the excess following the edge trim of the shoe.

    Apply protective spray

    As your embroidery will be quite exposed during the summer life of your shoes, I suggest using some protective spray to protect them from water and stains. Do this outdoors and let it dry there, as this does not smell very nice! The smell should disappear once it is dry, don't worry.

    You are done! You can now wear your pretty custom shoes all summer long.
