And all the pipe cleaner animals stood erect-- a fierce wall of nylon and wire defiance--
with one voice they exclaimed, "We shall not be silenced!"

Mod Podge Shoes

Hi Everyone!

It's been a long time since I've posted in my Fuzzington blog.  That's because I've been busy being a new mom, and blogging about that.  I have taken a bit of a hiatus from pipe cleaner animals and sometimes I'm even too busy to craft!

To satisfy my crafting hunger a little, I've been surfing Pinterest a lot, especially while I'm nursing.  My little Audrey nurses about 8 times a day, and that's 8 times a day that I get to pin stuff on my boards.

However, yesterday, I found a rare window of time to do a DIY project that I've had on my list for a few weeks now.  Mod Podging an old pair of shoes! I first saw this idea on Pinterest at  I absolutely loved the houndstooth pattern! From her blog:

Houndstooth Shoes DIY - 24

I also saw another version of how to do this with some old flats on Make it and Love It.  She did a reall cute job with hers as well:

So I decided to do a cross of the two and take an old pair of flats that I had and convert them to a houndstooth pattern too.  I wish I had taken before and after pictures, but I totally forgot.  What I started with were completely white shoes (so try to imagine).  I found the same houndstooth cloth at Joanns as the one in Meagan's tutorial.  Here is what I ended up with:

I love them! They're good as new! And I can't wait to wear them!! :)

Wow, these are some of the best Mod Podge shoes I have seen. I love the houndstooth. I tried this project, but my shoes didn't turn out quite as well as yours.
