Flew home from Sydney to Perth this mid-semester break and started the long promised sneaker customization my little sister Lani was begging for. All her friends wear them and she boasts of mine and wanted some of her own to show off. So we came up with a summer colour scheme and went on a craft shopping extravaganza. Two days later VOILA! These pretty little babies popped up ready for a soft-shoe shuffle.

We stenciled the swirls on using contact paper (not so good but freezer paper doesn't exist here), glued on all the sequins/frill edging/pom-poms, painted the laces and cut out little felt circles with pinking shears and centered with a button. She thinks they are too good to wear and is so paranoid things will fall off - but it as it is all super super glued everything should be stable!

You have no idea how satisfying pom poms on the ends of shoelaces are...  Grin
