Cool shoes

It’s almost spring, and lately I’ve had a yen for some cool arty shoes. I saw some fun Converse One Star tennies at Target a few days ago, but none were in my colors, so I bought a pair in white and painted them. I mixed some Jacquard Textile Medium in sky blue and grass green and slathered it on. Now I’m using some varigated Perle cotton to embroider them.

“What are those?” my pre-teen daughter asked yesterday, with a fair amount of disdain in her voice, after spotting them on my cutting table where I’d left them to dry. “You are so weird!”
