After Actually Wore
DIY Colorful SlipOn
Put a fabric #4 on the instep, and mark pins like that.
6. Fasten a Fabric
Till now, it was very easy.
But this part is, most important and difficult .Do it carefully and slowly.
At the first, fasten central small place only, to fix the fabric. Do as same as #4.
And then make the fixed place more larger, and rest complicated edges.
Pull a fabric like that fix along the carve. Very carefully, to avoid wrinkle and air bubble.
7. Fasten the Edges
Fabric is larger than instep. So cut off the remains.
A fabric where is close to sole, cut off a fabric along sole’s verge.
This is very difficult, if your fabric background is colored as mine,
small interstice would be conspicuous on the white canvas.
Do it very carefully, with shape design knife. Ans don’t cut slipon!
I want to leave piping white to be an accent.
Piping has a small space to hide fabric’s verge.
So cut a fabric a little little bit over sized.
Then, use eyeleteer and insert the remain verges under the piping.
This is very trouble some part. Be patience! You will see the goal soon!
And fasten verges with iron. Around piping, press over the piping.
After a while… finished!
8. Coat Slipon with Water Base Finish
To coat and give it strength, coat over the instep with water base finish.
It is very easy, I painted twice(pic above).
Please paint it carefully, avoid rubber sole. Because coating sealer would rubber color turns yellow. And it gets change in quality of rubber.
Verges of fabric is easier to peel. So paste it correctly.
Dry for 24 hours.
After drying, wear slipon and go out to show your friends new only one slipon!
