Cute DIY Summer Shoes: Tsum Tsum & Strawberries


A few weeks ago I had a sudden urge to customise some shoes! I don't know why, but I just really fancied making some really cute shoes. I had some leftover Tsum Tsum fabric from when I made my Tsum Tsum skirt (you can read about that here) and thought that it would make some super cute bows, and then thought those bows would look super cute on some shoes. 

I bought some plain white toms style shoes from Primark for £3 and began my little project (I seem to always need a project on the go!). I cut two strips of the Tsum Tsum fabric that were approx. 6cm long and 4.5cm wide and pinched them in the middle to create the bow effect - I then secured this by tying some thread around. To make them look pretty and hide the thread in the middle I glued some heart shaped buttons on top. I then glued the bows to the shoes and voila!

Then I found some fabric strawberries in Tiger that I thought would be perfect for my second pair of DIY shoes - they were only £1 and were so easy to make as I didn't have to do anything other than glue the strawberries onto the shoes using fabric glue. I think they look very effective and are just perfect for Wimbledon.

What do you think of my DIY shoes? Have you tried any DIY projects this summer?
