The jacket originally had long sleeves. I cut the sleeves off, making sure the pattern of the fabric was in the same direction and similar prints are in the same sides of the shoes. Then you just glue and cut with a sharp razor. The shoes were white and were scuffed on the side and heel from driving.

Ok NA,

I used Aleene's Tacky Glue for the shoes and yes, I did use Scotch Gard protector to repel water and stains. I got both of these from Micheals Arts & Crafts. The biggest tip I can give you would be to apply the glue all over the shoe first, then let it get to kind of a thick paste. Then you can put the fabric over the shoe and work it around until it feels tight. Let it dry over night and then cut away.
