Very cute! Have you seen the angry birds live action game that was set up? I don't have the link right now, however a quick youtube search should pull it up.

I just had the idea the other day to do the same as potholders for my boyfriend's grandmother for Christmas... I know potholders are kind of basic, but I learned she only has one at Thanksgiving... Smiley

I didn't expect the chalking to bleed as much as it did under the fabric paint, but I didn't get a chance to clean the chalking off around the outlines before I took the pictures...

I got these shoes at Alco, but Payless and Kmart usually carry them...  And I see them on eBay quite frequently for pretty cheap too.

I've been reading Craftster's forums for a long time, but I've never posted any of my projects... I never thought any of my "projects" were "crafty" enough, until I made these shoes yesterday.  I've been sick and laying around in bed all day gets kind of boring so I got inspired to make these shoes from a shirt I have with two birds flying away from a telephone pole.  I don't know why but for some reason, I have an affinity for bird silhouettes.  Anyway, my feet will only get to show these off in small-town Kansas and I wanted to share them.

I bought these shoes at Alco for about $5.37.

Printed out a design I created in Paint Shop Pro.

I traced the designs on the paper with a chalk fabric pencil and then pressed the chalking onto the shoes.

And then I painted them in with a fine line fabric paint brush and white fabric paint.

I wanted to put stripes down the side, as if the birds were in flight, but I think I'm going to add little red hearts on the lines.
If I do add the hearts, I'll post an update.

Each of the bigger birds has a rhinestone on the outerside wing.

I told my friend I made these last night and he thought I bought them off of eBay.
Silly boys.  Tongue


What do you think?  I want to do another pair with some cherries... I'm quite fond of cherries too...
