Sharpie Saddle Shoes

After I saw this Squidoo lens, Make Your Own Saddle Shoes, I had to give it a shot.  I have Sharpies.  White canvas shoes were easy to find at my local K-Mart.  And I had some time last night.

I didn’t do a neat as a job as the author of the lens did.  I just sort of went in full tilt with the purple Sharpie.  They are sloppy, but fun.  I’ll wear them. 

Taking a Sharpie to a pair of canvas shoes is nothing new.  In fact, Sharpie now makes a set of markers just for this purpose.  Do a search on Sharpie canvas shoes and see what beautiful things people come up with.  Doing a Tumblr search is a great place to start.

If I can keep on finding white canvas shoes, I may take a more advanced approach to customizing them.  Here’s one tutorial that I would like to try.

Did you ever color a pair of shoes with markers?  What did they turn out like?  I want pictures!
