I have finally finished those hot pinkish kitten heels.  They were a pain to sew so I glued the rest of the buttons on the second shoe.  I broke several needles but after number ten I got the hang of it.  E6000 seems to be working so far for glue.  I applied glue to both surfaces and let it sit a little before putting them together.  I just won't try to peel the buttons off (though I'm tempted to, I like peeling things). I probably won't ever wear these except under jeans because they look a little tacky to me.  I don't know yet.





I was also inspired to paint some canvas shoes when I saw these babies on sale for three bucks.  The first one is a design I ripped off a pair of shoes I wanted but didn't have any money to buy.  The second pair is a mismatched design I got from an artwork I made in class.





Let me know what you think!

HA! Thats so funny about buying the shoes. I bought some at target the other day because they were so cheap. I wish they had some sort of deomgraphic tracking device. Im sure they would be so confused, "When they were full price, only 45-60 year old men bought these shoes. Now that they are $3, 15-25 year old women cant get enough of them!!!"

I love the squid/veggie shoes.  What kind of paint do you use on the shoes?

"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.

"I don't much care where--" said Alice.

"Then it doesn't much matter which way to walk," said the Cat.
