My daughter loves Lelli Kelly shoes but my budget doesn't

I would really like to make something similar for her, so what would be the best paints and glues for kids shoes. They would probably be worn everyday so I am stuck on what is the most durable. Obviously I know they won't look a great as the really thing but it can't hurt to try. Any help would be great thanks.

Did you make the Lelli Kelli repro?  My dd loves them too.  Not only are they not in our budget, but her foot is too narrow to fit.
If you did make them, would you share your tips?

I had to put them on the back burner for a while but really want too give it a go soon. Still not sure what glue to use.

We used fabric glue and glued beads to fabric flowers then the flowers to the shoe.  I used super glue (gel type) to glue beads to the shoe, directly.
On another pair we put beads on the rubber part of some converse with super glue.
I'm blogging about it at my blog.  http://www.squigglytwigs.blogspot.com  You are welcome to follow our process and durability report there.

I'd sew on the embellishments as I've never had much success with gluing sequins and beads. The drawn-on flowers I'd do with fine-point sharpies.

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy
