Things you need
- Canvas shoes
- Fabric markers, fabric paint pens, or acrylic fabric paint
Purchase fabric markers, fabric paint pens, or acrylic fabric paint. If your canvas shoes are dark, rather than white, you will need to use acrylic fabric paint to make your design show up. If you use fabric paint, you will need brushes as well.
Set up a workspace. Cover tables or other work surfaces with newspaper to ensure that the fabric markers or paint do not cause permanent stains.
Practice your designs on paper first, so that you don't decide halfway through that you don't like the image. Try out a few different designs or ideas before committing to one.
Paint directly on the canvas shoes with your fabric markers or paint.
Go to an online shoe store that offers customisable canvas shoes, such as Zazzle.com/custom/shoes or Kedscollective.com/design-your-own/#body.
Select a basic canvas shoe style from the options available, and select your size.
Choose whatever colours or patterns you want for the shoe's body, heel, sole, interior, stitching and details. Zazzle.com allows you to import your own images or photographs for inclusion on your shoes. You can also add text.
