I bought this old pair of Target shoes on sale.  They were really boring, and I had already had a pair of white flats, so I decided to spice 'em up a little!

If you can't tell, yellow is my favorite color  Smiley








I just removed the bow, dyed them with Rit dye, and sewed the buttons on.  Thanks for looking!

ha ha, funny you should ask because they're actually not XD.  Well, I guess they're decent for a $10 pair of shoes. Others who have bought them (and with smaller shoe sizes) say they're pretty comfy, but I wear a size 11- maybe that has something to do with it?

 also the bee button is too cute.

oh. my. gosh.

thank you so much for this brilliant idea  Shocked
they're adorble!

I was never a fan of flats cause they make your feet sweaty and are usually plain and boring, but I need comfy cute new shoes for work, so I'm going to payless/wal-mart asap to try this out.

I also wear size 11 and find Target shoes run small for my taste.
I love what you did to them I might have to do that too. The white eyelet gets so dirty so fast!


I Love yellow Eyelet!!! Good job!

threehang I used some dye called Rit in the color Goldenrod Yellow.  Its a power that you add to water along with salt and a teaspoon of laundry detergent.  I put two packets in a bucket with some water, salt, and detergent, soaked them for a good 10 minutes, and then laid them out to dry.


Wow, thanks everyone for your kind comments!  This was the first project I have ever posted on Craftster, so thanks for making me feel welcome Smiley
