DIY Geometric Shoes with Tulip ColorShot

Hi friends! I’m Abby, from Sew Much Ado, and today I’m sharing an easy and fun way to make these geometric inspired shoes! Slip-on canvas shoes are my go to choice for footwear in the summer, and I’m always looking for a unique new pair to keep my wardrobe fresh and stylish. This is the perfect way to add some pizzazz to a pair of white canvas shoes, and will have your feet ready for Spring!
Color Shot Shoes
To create the geometric triangle shapes, we’ll use Tulip ColorShot Instant Fabric Color, which is a fabric spray paint that is extremely user friendly. You’ll have your new shoes ready to go out on the town in no time!

Let’s Get Started!
Color Shot Shoes
Begin by taping off the rubber edges of each shoe with painter’s tape, sealing off edges next to canvas as closely and tightly as possible to prevent paint bleed through.

TIP: It helps to use small pieces of tape around the toe and heel curved areas.

Cut small triangle shapes from painter’s tape, approximately 1”x1”x1” and place them in desired pattern on each shoe.

Now for the fun part – the painting! Place shoes on cardboard or newspaper in a non-windy outdoor location. Following manufacturer’s instructions, shake Tulip ColorShot Instant Fabric Color Spray for one minute. Spray thin, even coats, 5 minutes apart, until desired color is reached. I sprayed 3 coats of mint, and then finished with two coats of gold up the back of each shoe for accent!

Let shoes dry completely (30 minutes is recommended but I left these overnight). Remove all painter’s tape carefully.
