A Dotty DIY

 Remember my glitter shoe DIY? Those same $8 knock-off toms inspired another lil' crafty shoe...


POLKA DOTS!

I bought the pair of red shoes thinking, okay, red shoes. I like it. 
Until it came to me...I should paint them! With polka dots! 
Polka dots are always better than no polka dots. Obviously.



All it takes is some fabric paint, and a paint brush! I used a little round stamping brush to make the shapes more consistent.


I went back and forth from using a pattern, to just wingin' it and putting dots all over the place.
I'm really happy with the result. Everytime I wear them, I get at least one comment on them. (So far, only positive ones), and then people can't believe I painted them.

I love my polka dot shoes! They are cute and whimisical, and kind of remind me of minnie mouse, and I kind of feel like i'm wearing dice on my feet, but that's okay!



Happy crafting!
