I took on a project for my daughter last week to decorate some plain white slip-on shoes for her. Here's what I started with:
After a few hours of drawing with my colored Pigma Micron pens and some help from my mom on the rhinestone heat-setter, I came up with these sweet kicks:
The design is completely original, and I pretty much made it up as I went. I am very pleased with how this project turned out!
I found the blank white shoes at Hancock Fabrics for $7.50, and I already had the pens. I did all of the drawing in one day, and I wouldn't recommend that if your hands aren't used to that kind of work. I could barely hold the pen by the end!
My next projects will most likely be baby-related, since I will be having another girl in November. I am planning to turn my craft room (sigh. . .) into another nursery, so that will definitely have to start happening soon. Here are some of my inspiration pieces (I think) for the room:
I am definitely set on aqua and yellow for colors, but I can't decide between hot pink and coral red. These are the colors I originally chose:
Decisions, decisions. We'll see what happens.
