Ever dream about designing shoes? Do you think about how they are constructed and how the patterns or colors are chosen?
For today's activity, you'll be creating some shoes! We have 2 patterns - a mule and a ballet flat - that you can sketch your design ideas that you would love to see on a shoe. Maybe challenge yourself with a fun and outrageous theme - Circus theme? Summer theme? Food theme? Maybe a Van Gogh theme? (PRO TIP: Maybe you can do a Zoom or Skype or Facetime call with your bestie and challenge them!)
Then, take your designs that you drew and use the 3D shoe templates to bring them to life. Color your designs on the 3D template, cut them out and then construct them using tape (or glue). You can also cut out the template and trace it on to your favorite patterned paper, or magazines to use in your designs. You can also grab stickers, buttons, glitter, mini faux flowers, or other things to use as fab accents to your shoe design.
Look at how these 3D shoe pieces are constructed. Do you think you can come up with your own shoe template or pattern to make a different style of shoe? This would be a fun challenge to take your design skills to another level - Maybe you can make a sandal or an oxford?
