- A pair of shoes that you want to makeover
- Before you start with your DIY shoe makeover project first unlace the shoes.
- Then, measure how wide the area is at the bottom of your lace flaps and how long the tongue is. Do not forget to add an extra 1 inch or so to the length for the fringe detail.
- Cut out a piece of vinyl or leather using the measurements you take.
- Once you have cut the piece try it on so that you make sure it fits perfectly in the shoe area. Trim if necessary until you get the perfect dimensions.

- Then, use regular scissors to cut 1 inch of the peaks made by the pinking shears.
- Insert the vinyl piece back into the shoe. Use a marker to mark the bottom holes and then punch holes in the places where you marked them.
- Put the laces through the vinyl piece so that they are coming out the front (use the picture below to see how to properly do this step).
