  3. Using a #10 flat brush, add a coat of fabric decoupage to your fabric scraps. (this will avoid fraying) Trace and cut out patterns onto clear contact paper. Place the cut out clear contact paper over desired area of fabric (centering soccer ball, basketball, numbers, etc. To achieve the look of a patch, using #8 round brush paint the perimeter in any desired color listed. Randomly place and glue into place on shoes.
