It’s best to begin
with a rough mockup of how the new fabric will be covering the shoe. Cut
3 strips of scrap fabric, and place them around the back, side, and top
of the shoe with paper clips. This helped me get and idea of where to
place my embroidery on the final pieces of fabric.
Because everyone has different size feet, and different shaped shoes,
I encourage you to try this step and get a feel for how the fabric will
cover your shoe style.
