Have you seen these shoes? They are boring white tennis shoes dyed into awesome! A gal named Katy at Sweet Verbena made them and I love them! She even posted a tutorial on how to make them. I think they have been everywhere on every blog. All the cool crafters are drooling over them. And Me too! And I really would have already made them but I can't go shopping with my kids (see yesterday's post) and I can't go shopping without them. So I don't have any shoes to dye. But I will! And when I do...they will be this cool!
Added to my Craft Bucket List! #21
Next, I really, really need to add this to my Craft Bucket List and I really, really need to make them soon. Like, before I need to buy another package of swim diapers! Right now I am using some leftover swim diapers from my daughter (who has been potty trained for about 2 yrs) and my neighbor who is 6. I know. They are old diapers but they are doing the job. If I thought I had a handle on when my almost-2-yr-old was going to do a number 2 I would just wait and go swimming after it happened. But since I don't and since I don't want to clean up a "code brown" in the pool (really don't want to add that to my day) then I need the swim diapers. It just seems so silly to buy them now when we are cloth diapering, too. So with about 12 swim diapers left, I need to get a move on with this project here:
I found the tutorial over at Sew Mama Sew (the very first craft blog I ever read daily). But it is made by Samantha who has a blog, making it little by little, and a store, Little Comet Tails. With all of her awesome patterns for sale in her shop, I feel lucky to have this free tutorial!
This Swim Diaper is now #22 on my Craft Bucket List.
