It's like I have my own pair of back to school shoes.
(Sharpied saddle shoes, day 218)
I tried a fairly quick diy that I'd seen on Bleubird Vintage : Sharpied saddle shoes.
These shoes were on sale at Target for $8 so my daughter and I each bought a pair to experiment with. I toyed with the idea of more colorful shoes, even brown instead of the black. But in the end, I knew we had plenty of black Sharpies so that's what I opted for. I didn't even go to as much trouble as James did, though. To paint around the lace holes I just carefully pressed the marker near them, letting the color bleed to the edge. I did the same around the stitched rims, pulling the rim that I wanted to stay white away with my left thumb nail as I let the sharpie bleed color up to the edge of it.
I never used the paint and brush. So easy.
I did spray them with a fabric guard that we happened to have around the house once they were dry.
Now, I want some fresh spirals and new pens.
