Fashion Fix: How to cover a high heel in fabric

I've been looking forward to getting my toes into these autumn stunners. The embellished heel was all over the place last year but there weren't too many autumnal day alternatives. That is all about to change.

You will need:

  • A pair of shoes with block heels
  • Lightweight fabric, enough to cover each heel. We used Silk.
  • Pattern paper
  • Fabric scissors
  • Paper scissors
  • All purpose glue

How to do it:

  1. Make a pattern for your heel using pattern paper, allow for a small seam allowance to be folded under.
  2. Trace around the pattern onto your fabric and cut out. Make one for each heel
  3. Dab allpurpose glue onto a small section of the heel (starting at the base and working upwards) and glue the fabric in place, turning under any raw edges, and tugging it taut so there are no crinkles.  

TOP TIP- You will find this works best on block heels.
