|Supplies! ...and of course a paint brush|
|Mixing textile medium and acrylic paint in similar color as glitter, apply your newly made fabric paint to areas of high friction.|
|Paint thin coat of Tulip glitter fabric paint on to shoe (excluding tongue). Apply first layer of glitter|
|Second coat of glitter, applied same as first. Once dry, seal with third coat Tulip glitter paint, only. Paint and glitter is easily scraped off shoe eyelets with finger nail.|

I realize I could have made this whole process easier if I would have purchased a purple fabric paint, but (excluding the glitter) I was trying to be thrifty and use the stuff I had on hand. I get creative when it comes to keeping cost down. The cost breakdown: $2.99 plus tax, for glitter. All other supplies were remnants from previous craft endeavors.
Oh yeah...if you're doing this craft indoors, make sure the house fan is off. Not that I mind the fine dusting of glitter all over everything, but; it becomes a bit troublesome when you're unable to clean it from the nose wrinkle of a pug.
