Shoe Sugar Month: Day 15 Golden Fringe

January 24, 2011


I bought these shoes at the Community Aid Thrift Store for only $2 and painted them a periwinkle blue.
 I made the yellow pompoms with simple yarn and used Day 11's pompom tutorial.
 You can see how I painted the shoes here. I recommend using a flat or satin spray.

I may have just spent my entire lunch break looking at your blog. It seriously mesmerized me. I love that you share your talent with everyone, so openly, not trying to get anyone to buy something. It's inspired me. And holy cow, you are beautiful.

So cute - reminds me of the little pom poms you used to find on ice skates back in the day...

I love this color combo! I'm definitely going to read your tutorial on shoe painting. I've been quite curious about that for sometime.

Cute blog! Your projects look like so much fun. My friend sent me a link and told me I should check it out :)

You have the most amazing luck at thrift stores!! I just bought shoes exactly like that but in black (and on sale, of course!)

I saw the link to the pebble rug, and this immediately came to mind: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pebble-rug-2
Isn't it great? and it is very doable. It can be a seat cusion or a bath rug, does'nt have to be huge...
