June 3, 2009: Wow!!!! Thank you so much everyone. And thanks craftster...Best of 2008 is such an honor!!!!!!!
So, this is one of my favorite projects ever.
Here was my crazy process:
1)Bleach shoes to see if "cute" splotches are, in fact, cute.
2)Decide that I hate the splotches [and that they don't cover up the grubby stains.]
3)Buy black dye from Walmart to dye shoes with.
4)Shoes come out blue. Shweet. Yea, they actually are blue, the pics just look grey.
5)Leave shoes in closet for about 3 months while I half-finish other projects.
6)Pull them back out two nights ago to chop off the toes.
7)Add ribbon, fabric glue, and buttons. And there you go. I'm actually quite surprised at how even everything is. I was pretty much just choppin' and eyballin' it all.
