Title: super gardening clogs!
Post by: eronoel on April 03, 2006 09:01:24 PM
this is my frist ever challenge entry...so here goes!!

i started out with these croc-like shoes from walmart


then i got some fun fur for the grass


and finished it off with some garden accessories: a hose, stepping stones, flowers, a picket fence, and yes, even a giant anthill


here's a couple of action shots!



sorry if some of the pics are a little blurry...not sure how to fix that.

Those are really something!
i'd wear them as regular shoes - the world should get to see them!
Oooh, they're just great!

Those are incredibly fun! And my significant other complains because I wear my gardening clogs (from LL Bean) everywhere we go... what would he say if I started sporting those??? I'm so tempted...

I love those! how did you get the funfur attached to the shoe?  Some combination of weaving it through the holes and hot glue, I'm going to assume.  They're aweseome.

usually when i see the crocs, i die a little inside. but yours is WONDERFUL. I love it. Makes me want to start a garden in my shoe too!


Title: Re: super gardening clogs!
Post by: eronoel on April 04, 2006 09:37:33 PM
thanks for all the great comments! i had so much fun making these  ;D

i used rubbercement to put the funfur on, it worked surprisingly well.  the picket fence i found at michael's, i think it was something by jolene...? is that a brand? it's the same one that makes all those cool 3-D stickers. that's also who the hose is by.
