A simple craft that will help absorb odors and moisture from your shoes while helping the shoes to retain their shape. Please note that a mesh fabric was used for demonstration purposes only. To avoid dust in your shoes, use a slightly tighter weave fabric - muslin would be a good choice.
1. Cut a rectangle of fabric that is as wide as the inside of your shoe and twice as long as the area you want to cover. To be effective you want to cover at least the front half of the shoe.
2. Fold the fabric in half with the right sides facing each other. Sew the two long sides together.
3. Turn the bag right side out and fill with cedar chips or shavings. Cedar works well because it helps to absorb moisture and odor. You can add a couple of drops of cedar oil to the chips if you want to add fragrance. Tie the top tightly with a piece of ribbon or yarn.
4. Put in your shoe and make more for the rest of your shoes.
Cedar chips / shavings can be found economically at pet supply stores.
