Here's a great, simple DIY project from A Beautiful Mess for using glued-on tapestry fabric to create a kind of floral saddle-shoe effect. They note that there's another version in the offing with stripey fabric, which sounds pretty rad.
1. Glue fabric to the part of you boots you'd like to cover. Brush the glue (or Mod Podge) on and let the fabric dry. One great thing about using a floral pattern is that you don't have to be so exact about matching the pattern. Ours was pretty messy! 2-3. Use an exacto knife to cut around the edge of the boot. Take your time to cut clean lines. 4. Use Mod Podge to secure the edges of the fabric. This will keep them from fraying and make them boots more durable. ♥
