These are so awesome!  Shocked It's the projects like these that make me want to learn embroidery (even though yours are machine done) so I can have awesome things like this! Don't know if I ever will, not sure I have the patience (says the knitter)  Tongue

Great job! Fantastic!

I have wanted some of those since I first saw them a bit after converses became popular again. I love how tall they are.
Your embellishment is perfect and really awesome! Great job!

not super active, but still crafting and post lots on facebook.

AAAHHHHHHHHh thank you thank you, i just found my wedding shoes.  with different embroidery, though! 
questions:  did you find it difficult to embroider the part by hand that you ripped out?  what a wonderful idea!
also, i have to ask, how do they look on?  will they make my calves look big(ger)?  please an action shot!!!
(and also, in my mid-thirties... )
you did a wonderful job.

Haha ... my husbands says they are *schweet* .... and we are in  our mid/late 30's with 2 kids! I asked if I could get a pair and he says "After the other house sells.!  Yay ... I might just get a pair and have my mom machine embroider them for me. 

Oh and I CAN wear them when I am with him .... but ummmm ... we are home bodies and never go anywhere.  hehe

 Shocked I am so wisting these.....they are fabulous! BTW - my hubby tried to burn my black Chuck hi-tops when we were dating, he hated them that much. So I totally understand Wink I now have just a regular pair (but now that I've seen these - I will be buying them!!) and I'm sure he will give the same restrictions as your dh (we are the same age btw Kiss). LOVE LOVE LOVE these!

Come check out my etsy shop - vintage, eco-friendly and all kinds of crafty goodness Smiley
