• Repurposed Lace Scrap Tennies

    October 16, 2012

    Not so long ago I was one of those crafters who tried to make something work like it was the tool I needed. I wasn’t comfortable going into the hardware store and I didn’t know how to ask for what it was I needed. Imagine every time you needed to unscrew something you had to…

    I had different plans for this Shoesday, but Saturday night I had a dream about the coolest tennies. They were coral and teal and followed the totally on trend tribal style. Sunday morning I got up, called my mom and grandmother and worked on the shoes while on the phone.
