I could probably make those. Light bulb.
That is the origin stories of these shoes. Ready to hear how I did it?
(Just so you know there are affiliate links in this post, but I only post the products I have actually used and it costs you nothing, just helps with the upkeep of this blog)
- a pair of canvas shoes that I found at Walmart for $5.88 (They are actually pretty comfortable!)
- Sharpie Ultra-Fine Point Permanent Markers
- Fabric Paint Medium
- Pink acrylic paint and Paintbrush
There are a few things to be careful of through. The markers do bleed a little. They get absorbed by some of the fibers so draw quick and clean and go slow when you do any fill ins. You can tell they aren't perfectly clean lines, but since they are, you know, flamingo shoes, I wasn't going for incredibly professional.
Then I mixed the fabric medium and acrylic paint, got a small paint brush and went along the edge. You can mix the fabric medium with any color of acrylic paint and it is ready to go on fabric! Cool, huh? You will want to go super slow when painting the edge. Bright colors show up pretty good on white.
Then very lightly go over it with the modpodge!
