A second pair of knockoff TOMs, I wanted them to be Ravenclaw themed for my soon to be 11 year old. I started with a pair of grey cheapie ($3.00) flats and added blue stripes for a house tie look. They looked too plain, so I added an "R" for Ravenclaw and a simple painted crest. The backs are painted too -- one side has "Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure" and the other has a list of famous Ravenclaws.
She loved them, and I am ready to take a brush to a pair for me Smiley


in progress (along with the R2 shoes I made for daughter #2)
