I've had these plain white canvas hightops hanging around for ages waiting for me to decorate them. I grabbed some fabric markers the other night and together with my peacock obsession created these:











I added black laces to match the black piping and to make them look a bit stronger. What do you think?

These turned out great! I think the black laces were definitely the right choice, it ties into the piping, but also adds some really nice contrast.
