If people could put rainbows in zoos they'd do it.

my friend made these:




aren't they super duper? They used to be faux-chuck taylors. Now they're pretty!!!
she was inspired when i showed her craftster.  Tongue
she is considering painting birds on them. i don't think she should. what do you guys think?
She used acrylic paints, and says that they were easy to do and really fun.

she would greatly appreciate comments. to be honest i don't know why she doesn't make an account herself. but i don't mind. all the people who are too lazy to read all this writing will think I was the brilliant one who made these, but, alas, I am not.

Maybe I should make myself some....

 So cute! I say no to the birds as well... it might take away from the shoes visually.

Super cute!!!  I've been thinking about doing this to a pair of my old ones that I'm not really ready to toss yet...  Maybe I can breathe new life into them.

So, do you know if they stay on her feet when she walks in them?  I mean, do they flip flop a lot or do they stay on OK?

yeh they stay on fine but the size i got were like the perfect exact size for my feet so they're a bit tight...but yeh if you're gona cut up some ones that you already have there might be a bit of flopage but that can be easily fixed with some padding or thickish material sewn onto the inside
