If you’ve been following me on social media – you might have figured out I have a bit of thing for shoes. And not really plain old shoes – but fun, unique and super cute shoes. Unfortunately my budget doesn’t always run to fun, unique and super cute shoes – so I have to make my own DIY shoes!
They are all dressed up with darling chevron ribbon laces too! I think these would be really fun for a school or sporting event – they would be such an easy way to show a little spirit. They are so fast to make too!
- Canvas Tennis Shoes
- Fabric Markers – I used the blue marker in this set
- 5/8 inch Grosgrain Ribbon (I used Orange Chevron)
Begin by drawing the little scalloped edging along the back seam of the shoe. Add little dots in the middle of the scallops.

Bev’s little corner of the internet is Flamingo Toes. She grew up in a creative family of artists and seamstresses so it is no surprise that she loves to create. Bev began sewing as a teenager and made her own clothes and room décor even then. That love for DIY, crafting, and sewing has grown to include jewelry making, furniture refinishing and anything else she can learn. Her style could probably be described best as a mix between modern and vintage – she loves taking old styles and making them new and fun again. Bev is currently living in gorgeous Carlsbad, CA with her husband, two teenagers, and two cats, which are often more trouble than the two teenagers.
