I made these for my partner Patty_o_furniture for the IYP swap.  She said her favorite book was the Sorcerer's Stone. So I used a movie poster for inspiration for the tops and filled in the sides with other things in the first book. And this is what I came up with

Inside view

The back inside says Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff
Ouside view



These are my first painted shoes and I had so much fun doing them I a planning to do many more.  Thanks for looking C&C welcome Grin

Oh. My. Gosh. These are so fantastically awesome. I wish I could make these. So amazing. My only criticism is that they aren't on my feet right now.

Can I ask what shoes and paints you used?

I bought the shoes at walmart and i used regular acrylic paint with fabric medium for flexability and then spray sealed them.
