My bestie has a massive thing for SpongeBob and his crew. Ive been having major issues finding anything that she doesnt already have! Her last birthday was in April and I brought her stuff and got told off!! Turns out the awesome friend she is, she only wants stuff I make!
So these are her Christmas prezzy. Ive shown everyone except for her and its killing me! My work mates (and friends, family and my other half) are all putting bets on how long until I cave and tell her  Roll Eyes Ive lasted 3 weeks so far and still she doesnt know  Grin outlasted everyones expectations  Shocked

They were just plain white "Garage" sneakers I picked up from The Warehouse (cheap retail store here in New Zealand) that I covered with fabric paint. I had a ton of fun. Took me about 18hours to paint them!  Shocked





a couple of 'in progress' pics







turns out I dont have a pic of the other side, its the SpongeBob Squarepants logo.


and I also painted a jellyfish on the tongue  Tongue
there was a massive discussion between my "vision design team" (my mum, partner and other bestie) whether the Jellyfish would be too much, half said no jelly fish but the other bestie and I said jelly fish (the rest of the shoe is totally covered, would look wierd without it, plus, imagine untieing your laces and seeing him peeping out  Grin  Cheesy )

I hope everyone likes my shoes Smiley

lol, Ive actually wrapped them up and put them in the back of the closet  Cheesy out of sight, kind of out of mind.
Im just thrilled how awesome they came out. Ive seen other SpongeBob shoes online (with a scarily expensive price tag) but they dont even look half as epic at these do  Grin
Makes me twice as happy to know that sane people like them  Cheesy

I think the jellyfish is my favorite part!
turned out to be my fav part too, Im really glad I did it. My Mum and partner tried talking me out of it (total cow of a spot to paint) but Bambii (my other bestie) and I thought it would look awesome

I wouldnt mind painting more shoes. Perhaps not more identical like this, I quite like the individuality of them.
Hrm... maybe a Krusty Krab themed pair... I see more shoe shopping in my future lol
