box of purls
« on: July 18, 2007 06:30:22 PM »

So I got my favorite pair of shoes really dirty the other weekend and without thinking I began to clean them with a bleach based cleanser.  Halfway through the first shoe I realized that the red dirt was indeed coming out but the fabric was beginning to turn orange.  Well, I thought a few minutes and I came up with a solutions inspired by what I had seen on Crafster, I decided to just dye the whole shoe orange.  I didn't think I could a design of any sort from what I had already done and I sort of like the orange like it is and I'm not sure I'm going to go back and do the tongue of the shoe after all.  I think the navy blue tongue gives it character, don't you think?   Pictures below to enjoy.
