How could I resist a brand new $3 pair of Kmart white canvas shoes for my 5 year old?  As soon as I saw them, I thought, how can I make them funky for my son!?  He likes clothing and shoes with character.

So, armed with a 24 pack of Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens, I sketched some designs and coloured them in. 

The end result?  Designer-looking shoes for a fraction of the price.  And my son?  He ADORES them!

For more photos and an easy how to, just check out my post here: http://thecraftrevival-magdalena.blogspot.com/2011/01/canvas-shoe-makeover-tutorial.html

It can make an easy and fun craft for the kids to do on a rainy day too!

Hope they inspire you!
