Hi! I decided to dress up my tennis shoes a little bit the other day. I had saved two pins on Pinterest from
It's really quite simple. I took out my shoelaces, and measured a fabric strip of that length. The blue ones were narrower (about 1 1/2") than the green ones (about 2"). I had to piece the lengths of fabric, which I did with a diagonal seam, as in quilt binding.
I ironed them length-wise, then folded the raw ends in and sewed close to the edge. One site said to fold the ends together tightly and zig-zag over it to finish off the end.
I was a little worried about how I would get these "chunky" laces through the holes in my shoes. But between a tweezer pulling, and a skewer pushing, it wasn't too hard. So for one pair I simply used a pinking shears to cut a diagonal end.
Tying a little know near the end of the lace might be cute, too.
