Re-style- DiY Shoe Fun

I have been itching to make over some more canvas shoes since my last attempt. I had been on the hunt for some inexpensive canvas shoes when I finally came across this pair on clearance at Target.
You need:
Canvas Shoes
Fabric Markers ( I used Sharpie Fine Tip Fabric Markers)
tissue paper/grocery bags (to stuff your shoes)

First, you'll want to stuff the toes of your shoes with tissue paper or grocery bags (which is what I used). This will give you a solid, smooth surface to write on.
As you can see from the photo above, one shoe is smooth and ready to write on (stuffed) and one is dented (not stuffed).
Now, you can start adding some character to those shoes!
I did not copy or follow anything for my design. I just wrote about things I love, things that inspire me and things that make me smile. No rules!
What do you think?
This was such a fun and easy project. I believe I need to go shopping for more shoes now!
I kind of love them!

Now go buy some shoes and fabric markers, get creative, take pictures and share with us! 


  1. Super cute! What a great way to take something and make it uniquely you!

  2. Wow! I love these. I want to make a pair now!
