I found this pair of old white converse shoes at my Grandparents house and, of course, immediately started thinking of ways I could fluff them up a bit. I went into the kitchen to ask if I could experiment with them and the fam were all eating watermelon (cue the lightbulb). Lucky for me, they were up for grabs so I went to work on them. 
This is them before-


and after-





All I used were some permanent makers. Smiley This is my first time doing anything with shoes.  What do you guys think?

They look GREAT!  Be careful when you wear them though.  People are going to want to mug you and steal them off your feet!   Grin

They're so cute! You should try to find some green laces to go with.

Holy crap those are awesome!  I can't believe you just did that with permanent markers.  Great job!
