Reupholstering Some Shoes

First I got together an old pair of shoes that I wasn't too fond of, a bottle of Sobo fabric glue, a pair of scissors, and about a yard of fabric ( I used fabric from a long dress I had cut into a mini dress ).
I wasn't really sure where to start. So I just started cutting random pieces of fabric and then sort of molding them to the shoe (cutting off excess as I went). I slathered the fabric glue straight onto the shoe in some cases, and sometimes onto the fabric, then gently pressed it down onto the shoe. I recommend a busy pattern like this one because you can't even tell that I layered different pieces of fabric almost like a paper mache. I haven't worn these outside anywhere so not really sure yet how well the fabric glue will hold up. Good rainy day project for ya'll.
