Painted shoes were mentioned on Polymer Clay Daily today, and it reminded me… have I ever shown you my funky sneakers? I made them last fall, when it was getting too cold to wear my fuzzy flip-flops, but I was still in the mood to have some fun on my feet.
I used fabric paint on a pair of cheap canvas Walmart sneakers to make the sneakers brown with a handful of blue and green polka dots. I made “laces” by finger-knitting some fuzzy yarn. There are three polymer clay tiles that I made and threaded onto the laces as I put the laces on the shoes.
I felt weird wearing them at first, but now they’re a favorite of mine, and they made it through the winter surprisingly well. I like them best with cropped pants.
