cute!  i'm way too scared to try that, but i love how they turned out. 

off topic - i love your hair!  something i was going for, but didn't quite achieve.

more off topic - i read your blog about the mix tape and saw you used 'jolene' by dolly.  fabulous!

the bare bones tutorial is this. old sneakers you dont wear. cut out a "boat" shape. make it shorter in the back.  puncture holes in the side with leather piercer. weave the shoelaces across the shoe.  tie ends. no stitching, but i did a really poor job. i mean, ill be lucky if they last until september. xoxo.

those are awesome. it's really weird you look exactly like my big sister. you have the same colouring and hair and everything. I wouldn't be brave enough to cut up my shoes but these turned out great.

Those are swell!  I have a pair of shoes that are kinda messed up on the top, so maybe I'll try this. 

You look kind of like a friend of mine in your avatar.  Cute!!
