For many women, a great pair of shoes are their statement piece when planning an outfit. I love wearing an eye-catching pair day or night, which is why they are one my favorite DIY subjects.

These fabric enhanced T-strap heels are charismatic and very simple to make. In fact, you could probably start and finish them while you’re rushing to get out the door to a holiday party.


Pair of T-strap heels
Scrap Fabric (I used t-shirt material in two different shades)


1. Cut your fabric into strips, about 4 inches in length and 1/2 inch in width.

2. Starting at the bottom of the T-strap, tie the fabric around the shoe making a tight knot.

3. If you’re using different colors, repeat with alternating fabric colors up the length of the strap until it is filled.

4. Repeat the process on the other shoe.

Option: Try this DIY with vibrant or sparkly fabric – or mix it up with multiple colored fabrics – for shoes that will really stand out!

How simple was that? Another bonus about this simple DIY is that it does not permanently alter your heels. You can easily remove the fabric knots without damage to you shoes, so you can wear them as is, or switch it up with different fabrics.

  1. My favorite thing about this is that it is temporary! That way you’re not always fretting about finding shoes to fit an outfit, you can make new shoes! :-) Thanks for the DIY, @nellecreations, I think I’m going to have to experiment on a pair of my t-straps for NYE!
