DIY Shoe Cover Up/Refashion
I have really, really missed blogging. We've been in the middle of a move and are finally settling in. We actually have one more (permanent) move before it's over, but we're done for now. I just couldn't seem to find the time or creative energy to blog, and now I can't seem to find my supplies! However, they're slowly resurfacing and I have a really quick little project for you.
I bought these boots a few weeks ago and really loved them. I didn't, though, like the lining inside of them. It's a Native American print, which doesn't really jibe with my style or the boot in my opinion, but even if it did- I would still be uncomfortable with it. Have you heard of cultural appropriation? If not, look into it.
Anyway, I gave it a quick refashion and made the boots all black! I could have chosen another color (perhaps hot pink for a pop) but decided against it. I think this would be really fun to use on cloth shoes (I keep thinking of ballerina flats) that are dirty and need refreshing. You could even tape off areas to create stripes, or do one color and then use a stencil to add a pattern.
Lots of ways to use this.
I have a giveaway tomorrow to include with a (rare) high five for Friday post, so check for that! And hopefully next week we will be back to normal :) All the best, and as always, thanks for reading!
