1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Spray paint over painted shoes? on: September 16, 2012 11:03:47 AM
I bought these booties a while a go and haven't really wore them, & I've been wanting yellow shoes, so I decided to paint them. Far away, the look great, but up close it looks like it needs a more layerf of paint & I've painted them 4 or 5 times. I feel like if I give it more coats it will become really stiff?

I was wondering if I could spray paint over them or should I just continue painting?



BTW: That is blue tape on the bottom. So that paint is not on the sole.

If there is already a post answering this question please let me know!

Thanks in advance.

This is amazing!   I've wanted a fringe vest for a while, and this is oh-so-doable.  I might have to give it a go myself. 

I hope you do! It's so flipping easy.
& thanks for the kind comments folks!
I know the pictures suck, but I don't have an awesome camera like everyone online seems to have lately!  Angry

Oooh. Love that pattern you cut. I never would think of that.
Those sleeves are awesome!
Comfy fashion for the win! Love it.

"Shoplifting" in my Grandmother's closet, I found a big ol' 90's lookin' jumper.
The memories of putting on denim jumpers when I was a little kid made me cringe.
I still don't understand how people didn't throw tomatoes or shoes at me. The way jumpers looked then was just...ew.
But when I saw it, I immediately imagined what I could turn it into. I stuffed it in my hobo bag and ran away.
Got home, cut it, sewed it to fit my ribcage, and slapped on fringe. BAM!

The original image was after I cut and sewed. I was too impatient to wait, but you get the picture of how ugly it was.

PS: Yes, I asked my Grandmother if I could have her jumper. Stealing is wrong kids, even from familia.
QUESTION: I think I should change those buttons. Where can I find some tack buttons? What color/style? Suggestions?  Huh Thanks!

I've always wanted to reconstruct a thrifted dress, I just can never find the right one. I'm not good at looking at something ugly and making it beautiful.
I wish I had that talent like you!

Dresses are so amazing, especially on you!  Smiley

That spirograph top is incredible!

I concur!  Smiley
8  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Vegan Black Bean Brownie Fail on: May 14, 2012 04:37:36 PM
I've tried to make black bean brownies (similar but different recipe) and even used real chocolate chips....wasn't great.
The consistency of the black beans baked just wasn't right. Results tasted sticky and well, bean-y. Lol.
They definitely weren't soft and fluffy like the dairy based.
I hope you find another recipe that works!

Love that antique feel it gives. I'd wear it.
Nice creation.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Bleaching Poly/Cotton on: May 05, 2012 02:10:31 PM

I bought this shirt at a thrift store & turned it into a skirt (I'll post the results later), but I would like to bleach the bottom of it. The "now skirt" is 40% polyester, 60% cotton. Will the fabric bleach/whiten? Will it cause damage/deteriorate? I tried to look for an answer and read that polyester doesn't bleach.

Because of the fabric being cotton & polyester though, will it work?

I guess an intelligent craftswoman should know this...guess I'm not one. Lol.

Thanks!
