How to Rework Your Old Booties

by Nina Le

Do you have a pair of old booties sitting in your closet? Here's an idea on how to re-work them.


  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Ruler
  • Clips
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Grab a pair of booties.

    Step 2

    These are Top Shop booties from a few years ago.

    Step 3

    My goal is to cut off all the stained edges.

    Step 4

    Fold the top in to desired height.

    Step 5

    This is the height I chose for my re-work.

    Step 6

    Step 7

    Step 8

    Grab your chalk and start marking along the top.

    Step 9

    Unfold and this is what it will look like.

    Step 10

    Step 11

    Grab a ruler and mark another line half an inch above the original line.

    Step 12

    Step 13

    Step 14

    Start cutting away.

    Step 15

    Step 16

    Once it's cut all the way around, pull the lining away from the fabric. Go about an inch down. If there is any lining or extra strips in between, just snip it off.

    Step 17

    When you have completely separated the fabric from the lining, grab your Mod Podge.

    Step 18

    Apply glue to the inside of the fabric and fold down.

    Step 19

    Wait an hour for it to set. You can add clips to make it hold.

    Step 20

    Step 21

    Fold the lining in so that it is slightly lower than the outside fabric. Add Mod Podge to seal the lining to the outer fabric.

    Step 22

    Step 23

    Step 24

    Add your clips and let it sit over night.

    Step 25

    And voila! My finished project!
