Hi there!!  I'm in a christmas exchange with my mommy group on facebook, and I just had to make my partner's son something.  He loves The Cat in the Hat, so in comes in the shoes!  These were plain black canvas shoes when I started.  Using Tulip fabric paint, in lots of layers, I got these.  I also personalized it a little more by adding his name to one side of the shoe.  I'm really happy with how they turned out!  Super excited for him to get them!









Thanks for looking!
