Wearable Art Tutorial

by Amy Powers | 4 years ago

 

Add stitches, beads, and sequins to customize a plain pair of shoes

Start with a fresh new pair of plain light-colored espadrilles as the canvas for a wearable art!

  • Doodle the design on one shoe with a pencil.
  • Mirror the design on the other shoe.
  • Then use a selection of colored permanent markers to color in the design.

‚ÄčThe fun part is adding stitches, beads, and sequins to fill in the design. Use a narrow needle and wax your thread for best results. Feel free to use pliers to help pull the needle through the thick canvas. Before you know it, you’ll have a pair of beautiful shoes!
