When I made this blog, I spent days trying to think of a name.
A perfect pair fits well. Because, obviously the husband and I are a perfect pair. But another reason was because I wanted to focus more on the crafty things I love so much, and one thing I've done a bit of lately is custom shoes (which I think is excellent.) So, a perfect pair. And, my more recent shoes:
These were for my cousin, who wanted a couple of album covers of her favorite band. To paint shoes I mix acrylic craft paint with a fabric paint medium. They should hold up pretty well, but I still don't wear my painted shoes when it's rainy or snowing. (They are really cool.)
These were for another cousin. She wanted custom wedding shoes. I should have taken a picture before I sent them to her, but eventually they looked like the bottom picture.
These were the first shoes I decorated without paint. I sewed the lace on, and glued the ribbon.
The last pair I did was for my youngest sister. I realized that it was super rude of me to not have made her any yet, so they were her Christmas gift. These were really easy, I just tea stained the shoes, and replaced the laces with lace.
Oh. I did do custom soles and they gave me a bit of trouble. I am not sure I'd do them again.
So yes. That is my talent of making custom shoes.
There will probably be more.
