Project Pinterest #2: Mod Podge Shoes

Is it just me or is everybody else so excited about Sandee's Project Pinterest being hosted?
I know I've already submitted an entry for this month, but I just couldn't resist it when I saw this on pinterest. I was instantly one of those "" moments! I had everything I needed to turn my boring old flats from crappy to happy!
So may I introduce you to *drumroll* my Red Polka Dot Shoes:

This was the pair I saw on pinterest:

So what did I do? I just gave my flats a good wipe with a damp cloth to make sure everything's clean. Then I applied a generous amount of mod podge and started covering my shoes with pretty polka dot fabric.
I left it over night to dry and voila! A whimsy pair of flats perfect for summer. :)

For a step by step tutorial follow this link.

Do you know what else gives me a bonus? I've googled "Red polka dot flats" and found this:
Close enough? Guess how much this pair is? £15.99 ! Wowza!
This is the link to the shop.
So that totally makes this a good project, no?

Don't forget to hope on over at Sandee's and check out what everyone else is doing. :)

A side note for my Egyptian friends: If you're asking what "Mod Podge" is, it's just "غراء أبيض شفاف". That's what you say to the guy at the paint shop if you want to buy some. :D

Have an extra crafty day!                                     


  1. Superb! I am always a fan of polka dot things & you have done it perfect my friend..
    Enjoy ~

  2. OMG me too! I love everything polka dot AND red! I've just asked my nanny where that fabric came from and she told me it was left over from a dress she'd made me when I was 5! Eeep! :D

  3. OK, that is an adorable image, the fabric having been a dress from when you were 5! Love that idea! You did a very professional job with those shoes too, we need to get you linking up on WOYWW every Wednesday so we 1. see your crafty space and 2. keep up with you! Anyway, I bet those polka dot shoes look CUTE on you!! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

    1. I know right? :D I'm looking for a picture of me wearing that dress now and I'll add it as soon as I find it! It was very easy transforming those shoes into something cute, it's not really about me it's just easy breezy like that! lol

      I've seen a couple of posts on your blog and Kay's too. I think WOYWW would be the perfect way to make new friends. I'll try to figure out what that is about and link up on the 4th of July. ;)

      Thank you for hosting such a great party.

  4. Hi Roudi,

    Very cool!!! I've seen this on pinterest and didn't pin it -- now I'm thinking maybe I should. Can you imagine two different fabrics for sneakers!?! I love how your shoes came out.


    1. Oh! It's such a cool idea that I just had to try my hand at it! Personally I wouldn't wear mismatched sneakers, but if it's say plain red on one and red & white stripes on the other I think it would look pretty hippy, no?

      Kisses. ♥

  5. Oh my goodness! Those are the cutest shoes ever! Wow! I can't wait to look at that tutorial. Neat!

    1. Gee, thank you! :D It's such a great and easy-to-follow tutorial. Check it out. ;)

  6. These are so adorable!!!

    MSA your crafts are beautiful!
    I was looking for mod podge and gel medium to do a photo transfer to wood, but I couldn't find it at all :(
    would you advise me on where to find it in Egypt? I went to Samir & Aly but they didn't know it and I couldn't describe it well :(
    Your help is much appreciated.
