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

I totally love them! I'm a little addicted to shoes and really need to start doing some shoe recons. These are awesome. Thanks for the inspiration!

Very cute.  Much better than the white.  The dye is a nice trick Smiley
