Sketching on Shoes

Wedding Shoes painted with Dahlias-copyright Cindy Rippe 2013

You know I love to sketch flowers.  Did you know that I like to draw on clothes too?  I used a red Pentel Red Gel Roller for Fabric on this pair of shoes to match a wedding dress.  The only problem I had was that after I sketched the Dahlia on the first shoe I had to get the pattern off of it and reverse it for the other shoe.  (Reminder to self: Don't free hand a design on an uneven surface if you need to repeat it.)

I added Black Satin Ribbon and a bow using my favorite glue for fabric -  Beacon Adhesive's Fabri-Tac.  It grabs hold right away and stays on.  Perfect for a pair of shoes that will probably see lots of dancing at the Wedding Reception!  I bet you'll be looking at some of those shoes you haven't worn in a while a little differently now, won't you?
