I've had men's converse for about 4 years now, and they always make me look too manly. They are all black and also had black laces. I thought they might be cute ballet flats and would look great with this new owl shirt my cousin got me. I tried to make them, and couldn't seem to keep them on.
My feet are too small. So I looked at my scraps, and decided I could make Mary Janes, but add some elastic to them so it would fit me. I don't have elastic laying around, so i used some from one of my dad's ribbed socks.
This tutorial was easy and amazing and I love your idea! Thanks to you, I can wear my beloved converse without looking like a man.
And I call them my Punk Mary's.
