Patches are still hot thanks to Gucci and these shoes are right on trend with a floral embroidered applique. An easy DIY to jazz up a pair of plain white sneakers that are perfect for spring. I love pairing these with jeans and they will also look pretty cool with cutoff shorts for summer. If you want to make them closer to the Gucci sneakers, feel free to paint the sides of the white sneakers! I personally liked the plain white with just the patch detailing.
TIME | 10 mins
COST | $30 (relative to the shoes you use as a base)
What you’ll need:
- Take your appliques and make sure they fit to your shoes, lay them out to get a rough idea of how you would like to glue them down
- Because my feet are tiny (I’ve been nicknamed by some friends for having #babyfeet) so I trimmed the appliques so they fit my size 6 shoes
- Take E6000 and apply it to the patch in sections and glue it onto the shoes
- Let the glue dry for 24hrs and dance around in your new shoes!
