I have these awesome air-brush high top converse that are too small on me. They are so cool, i really don't want to throw them out. They are blue with a pink heart and have my name down the back. Any suggestions?

You could put a plastic lining (maybe a regular grocery bag?) fill it with dirt and grow a plant in them!

Love this idea!

I can't really think of anything innovative or even remotely amazing right now, but if nothing else, use them as pencil holders! Fill the toe with tissue paper and line the heel (if you'd like) to protect the interior. If your house is anything like mine, there are spare pens, pencils, and other doodads everywhere.

If they're one size too small I'd say make them into Maryjane type shoes. I've seen a few converse to Maryjane transformations around here and they look like they make it possible to have extra room for your foot. Good luck!

Ohhhh, you could make a purse out of them! Totally deconstruct them, and possibly use the soles as the bottom of the purse to provide some structure. It would look rad, especially if you somehow could lace the sides using the old lace-holes...

Anywho, I hope this post wasn't non-sensical. I Kind of want to get some Converse hi-tops now.... and make a purse out of them...
