Hello. You can call me Biinkz! -waves-
I have this skirt, and i think it's kinda ugly, and I want to make it over, but being the un-creative person that I am.. I have no ideas and I don't want to mess it up!

Here's a picture!

Alsoo, I have these shoes that I bought at a store a long time ago, and I never wear them. I need to personalize them, really bad! What type of paint is good to use? The're cheap shoes.

Thanks for your help!

I can't tell for sure from the picture if the shoes are canvas (they look like it) and I had a pair of shoes like this once and I dyed them with fabric dye.  I made the dye up in my washing machine and then threw the shoes in - they came out great.  I dyed mine orange  Grin

Just be sure to run the washing machine through with no load (or old towels) to clean it out.

Well, since I use my friends washing machine, I can't do that.. Maybe I could buy Fabric Paint, would that work? I hope it will!

You don't have to use a washing machine for fabric dye - you can use a large pot, too.

I've never used fabric paint on shoes so can't really comment on that.
