Shoe Re-do

On a recent trip to a local second hand store, I found a like-new pair of shoes in my daughter's size. Problem was, they were boy's shoes. But at a dollar, I couldn't pass them up; I knew we'd figure it out. When we got home, sure enough she refused to wear them. When asked what was wrong, she made it clear that if they weren't pink, she wasn't interested. So mom had to get a little creative. A permanent marker and some steam-a-seam did the trick. I covered the orange and black stripes on the tongue and one of the velcro straps with fabric, and colored the toe, second strap and heel piece in bright pink ink. Now she loves wearing her new shoes. This post is linked up at House of Hepworths!
