I got these plain maryjanes at Goodwill the other day.

They happened to be exactly my size and were just screaming for something to be done to them.  I thought about different ideas for a while, and then decided:  CHECKERS!!

I know they're nothing special or original, but I like them.  And I don't have any checkered shoes, so I needed some.  XD
Putting all those checkers on was sure a pain in the butt, though. >_<
Anyway, what do you think? ^^

Thanks roskate!  They're not all perfect, actually, but you can't really tell when I'm wearing them.  What I did was make a little strip of cardboard the width that I wanted the squares to be.  I put tape on the back of it and starting about center of the toe part, I just laid it down and traced it, then scooched the cardboard over, lined it up, traced again.  I did that all across the shoe, then went back and did the cross lines.  Then I coloured every other one with a black fabric marker.  It took the better part of last night, very time-consuming.  I wish I knew of a better way to do it!
