My daughter is out growing her clothes at the usual furious pace of young children. Believe it or not I squirrelled away some of the clothes my boys had. (OK, actually I squirreled away just about all of them but I gave most away when we found out we were having a girl.) So now that my girl needs some new sneakers out pop her older brother’s new pair. Ta-tah. The only problem is she is a VERY girly girl. My daughter had a lot of suggestions “These shoes need pink and purple, and some yellow too. And some flowers. And some glitter.” At that list I said “Stop, I can only do so much.” So, after a little Pebeo Setacolor fabric paint in metallic pinks and purple and some Jaquard Neopaque yellow paint with a glaze of transparent Tulip glitter demensional fabric paint, as they say here, Voila! I hope she doesn’t expect this every time.
Here are my before and after pictures. Unfortunately, the glitter doesn’t show up well in the photo.
