Those did turn out very nice.  Whimsical is the word.

I am interested in Halloween Rinchies (round inchies) to make bottle cap magnets.

hey, i just got some (more) converse, in violet (!!!) and i'm seriously considering doing this to them. SO i was wondering if you could tell me a few things.... like:
What type of needle did you use? was it very sharp, or was there anything special about it?
How long did it take you?
(If you messed up) Did it make much of a mark, or was the hole big? Did it disappear really easily, or did it sort of stay there for a while?
and... well, how good at embroidery are you? have you been doing it for ages, or is this project ok for 'i'm-ok-but-not-that-totally-faboulous' people (aka, me.)
i think thats all.
 I would really love to do this, but i'm not sure because i'm usually not to keen on embroidery and so i often dont to a very nice job.  Undecided
Thanks again,  Kiss

Sorry, it took me a while to respond...

So, I would highly recommend using a sharp needle (nothing special needed, though), it will go through nicely.

It took me about three hours to finish one shoe, while watching TV Wink

It kind of depends on the needle, the hole, but it doesn't leave that big of a hole if you just use a normal sized needle.

I'm not that great an embroiderer my self... I just winged it, it shouldn't be too hard. If you do something wrong, work it into the embroidery if it's not completely awful. After all, it's a shoe, it won't be looked at so carefully Grin
