While on a pinterest binge the other day, I came across these amazing cross-stitched fox shoes:

Unfortunately, despite my instant love, they were quite out of my price range. My solution was to purchase a pair of flats from Target ($16.99) and take to them with my paints Smiley So now I have a casual pair of flat shoes with a pair of foxes.





I might go back and add some grass around the very bottom/toe area, but I wanted to focus the details on the top part that can actually be seen.

Lovely, much quicker and easier to do and probably a lot more hard wearing.  I especially like the eyes.

Thank you both! They were extremely quick to make. One or two episodes of Doctor Who with my crafting friends and they were already done Wink (on top of eating my dinner) Now I just have to break the shoes in, but I didn't want stinky pre-worn shoes while I was painting Wink
