So... I've had these plain white converses sitting around in my "To Do" basket forever and a day.  Problem is: I don't have any fabric paints.  I forget about them, and they gather dust (probably).

Then two wonderful things happen at once:  My brother brings home flourescent fabric pens from a mate at uni, and I see the new Craftster challenge!  The ideas fuse together in my brain, so I settle down with my bootleg copy of Brokeback Mountain, a packet of chocolate digestives and my shoe-painting supplies, and I get going!






Sorry for the sub-par pictures, I did something terrible to my web-cam in a previous life, clearly.

What do you think?  I'm debating whether or not to do something interesting to the laces.  What would look cool?

I think that it would be cute if you threaded some of those star-shaped pony beads onto the laces.  Those shoes are very 80s... if you wanted, you could make legwarmers to go with... then you'd look like rainbow brite!

hee hee. those are so cute. some beads would look really good, and this is just a random idea but you could paint flourescent stripes on the laces...whatever length you choose.

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times...if one only remembers to turn on the lights.

You can lead a heart to love, but you can't make it fall.

HAHAHA Those are totally rainbow brite, well at least she should have worn those instead of those ugly moon boots she wore.

Now I'm wishing I still had my star bead stretchy bracelets from long ago.
