Let me add my praises to the chorus! AMAZING! I am really impressed with the hat (I read your blog, I understand the frustration, but believe me when I tell you that you did soooo well for your first attempt at hat making, I have no doubt that any future hats will be even more impressive)

I would wear that outfit out, no questions asked Wink

I learned all my morality from the My Little Pony Movie:

Morning Glory: They need our help, Rosedust!

Rosedust: It's not our fight, Morning Glory.

Megan: Yes it is! It's everyone's fight!

Lickety-Split: Yeah! Everybody has to help everyone else!

thanks for all the kind words y'all!  boo_zombie, oh i love the shoes! i wanted to wear them to work! hahaha. but unfortunatley they cracked and flaked where they bend near the toes. im going to have to think up some way to fix them. they staryed perfect everywhere else on the sue but i painted them with acrylic paint and it just wasnt flexible enough.


I was already going to comment on how well you matched the original, and how your shoes were way better, when I saw this comment.  If you mix the paint with a fabric medium it should make it flexible enough to withstand cracking.  You can find fabric (sometimes called "textile") medium right alongside the craft paints usually.  You mix 2 parts medium with 1 part paint, and then paint as usual.  It will make your paint look different, but it dries looking the same as the original.  The only thing is, it will be shiny, so you will have to go over the whole shoe again to make it match.  Also, I would pick off as much of the cracking paint as possible first.  Go over it with a good stiff, dry nail brush.  HTH!!

When i was doing a pair of shoes I was told that this only worked on fabric shoes not vinyl or leather shoes. That with those you had to take off the shiny stuff with nail polish remover for it to not crack.
