I have recently bought a three dollar pair of white vans at a thrift store(hurray!) and I was wondering what the best techniques for revamping them would be. -can I dye my canvas shoes nicely without messing up the rubber or anything? -I'd like to paint them, but I don't want them to look shiny... -I could sew fabric on there...but I can't think of any sweet ideas... -sharpies...I don't want it to bleed either. I don't know. What do you guys think is the best technique? here's the deal: I'm not really into the skull and crossbones sort of thing I really want them to be cute and witty...but if it would be just a cool, original design, that would also do.
okay, so my soccer team has forced me once again to take part in the secret sister fiasco we have six home games...and each one we have to provide a 2-5 dollar gift for our sister My secret sister is Ruth, she is the goalie, and i usually play defense..so we know each other pretty well... she is fifteen years old, her family is very centered around sports, and she is very talkative
this is her list of "likes" -(soccer) -purple -rasberry ice (crystal light) -cantelope -organized things -halloween -pillows -movies -french fries -icecream
some of my ideas so far are: -a cantelope with sharpied on dots to look like a soccer ball..hehe -a soccer pillow? -a bucket of baby ruths(the candy) -and i think a school essentials kit w/ gum, chapstick, locker magnets, and mech. pencils...i can't figure out what else to add if you have anything else to add to that i would appreciate it very much! thanks in advance for your help!
