I recently bought very cute emerald green and cobalt blue jeans for Spring and I’ve been wearing them with some black Converse type shoes. But I had also been wanting to play with the Stained Permanent Fabric Marker pack from Sharpie that I picked up. So I bought some white canvas shoes from Kmart for a bargain $4.50 and set to work.
The pens were so easy to use. They are brush tip and don’t need to be set in any way – just draw and you’re done. I drew flowers and leaves for a classic Spring look, but I have seen stripes and chevrons on shoes that looked great. I also coloured in the stitching line.
All up it took me maybe half an hour in front of the TV and I can’t wait to wear them to a birthday party tomorrow.
(That reminds me! I’d better get on with sewing the present!)
Other projects you could use these pens on:
- tote bag
- pencil case
- table cloth
- wall art
- shorts or jeans pockets
- sunglasses case
- pillow cases
