Covered Shoes
These shoes were covered as a project in the graduate level Costume Crafts class in Spring 2015. The bows and heels were first removed from the original shoe and the sole lossened from the shoe. A layer of glue was brushed on and fabric applied over the glue, adhering it to the shoe. Fabric edges were secured between the sole and the shoe body.
