I bought some plain white canvas shoes and got some fabric paint and acrylic paint, decorated them, and then sprayed them with some sealer. And dyed the shoe laces with acrylic paint and water. I want to write something on the scrolls on the side, but I'm not sure what to put there. I was thinking song lyrics or something. Any ideas? I'm also thinking of maybe selling something like these but maybe with personalized writing on the scrolls for maybe $15 or so. Sound like a good idea? I really have no experience with selling my crafts, but a few people have expressed interest in it so far.

Fantastic!! Did you use a stencil or was it freehand? They're amazing!

Well I made the designs and redrew them onto cardstock and made some simple shape stencils and then drew the small details onto the shoe in freehand

I am in love with those shoes!! Shoe-craftiness is the best kind!!

I painted some pumps before Valentines with "love" on one foot and "me" on the other with some hearts scattered around>> they got a lot of attention and were much cheaper than the ones I borrowed the idea from (Urban Outfitters was charging an insane amount so I went to Wal-Mart and bought mine for $8 and some easy-peazy painting later, my feet were stars!!)

She looks too pure to be pink!

Cute! About selling them... I guess it would be kind of important that the paint didn't disintegrate completely if it rained (otherwise you may get some annoyed customers). Is the sealant strong enough for that?

If I bought them, though, I would probably never wear them for fear of ruining them, they're so cool!

I reckon you could definitely get at least $15 for them, probably more when they're so professional-looking. P&P could be quite a lot for a pair of shoes though...?

This is great! I had the same idea! You got to it first, though, and the shoes look great.

You have given me motivation to get my butt moving...
