Some new *old* shoes

How about taking these already lovely pink sneakers (size 2) that I had for free at a thrift store...

And turn them into those punk ladies...

I'm the kind of person that draws all the time, and so made up character to draw all the time...
You can see Fantomp the Octopus....

...And Butterbeer the Crab.

I used:

Jo Sonja's Textile Medium
Americana Black
0 size Paint brush
Black shoestrings with white skulls on it

Thanks for looking!


In order to enter this post to the party, I'm listing the cost for them:


Had the shoes for free, cut a shoes string a had laying around in half, used paint my mom gave me, and a paint brush she also gave to me.
totaly free, now that's punk!


  1. Girl, those are cute! Do you know how much they charge for stuff like that in the high end baby stores???

  2. Very boutique and sooo cute! I love them! I'm so impressed you freehanded the little sea creatures. I can't draw anything. :) (Thanks for the advice on the mermaid tail towel, BTW!)

  3. These are adorable! You come up with the cutest ideas! Love them and your little characters! :)
