I'm wanting to paint some shoes for my daughter.  I'm looking for mary janes, or t-straps that are blank canvas.
I've done a google search and found toddler sizes, but none for youth.

If a softer cotton is okay, you can try searching for "china doll slippers" instead.
Depending on how old your daughter is and what size she wears, you might want to look for small women's sizes as well, which I know the china doll slippers come in.
I also tried looking up "dance shoes" and found some girls' character shoes (which are mary jane style) in plain black canvas, but they get pretty expensive.

A friend of mine, Dana, is running a site called 'Simply Blanks'.  I know her quality is good, because I used to sell the shoes that she is selling! Cheesy  I use them ALL  the time.

The website is www.simplyblanks.ne t and you can look her up on Facebook under simplyblanks.  She is really easy to work with, too.

Thanks.  I've already contacted her, but need larger sizes.  The mary janes I'm wanting, she can't get in youth sizes, only toddler.
I'm still hunting mary janes and ballet flats in blanks.  I have found some, but have to purchase them by the hundreds...not do able for me.  I'm not interested in a business at this.
