One of the first things on my Facebook feed this morning was a photo of a pair of red and a pair of green wingtip Keds, made by St. Louis dancers Beccy Aldrich and Kayce Maureen. I love a DIY project and the shoes were so adorable I couldn’t resist posting them here.
They got the idea from Pinterest, which linked to this site in a language unknown to me. However, the photographs take you step by step through the process so you can make a pair of your own! Beccy adds that they used fabric pens to create all the patterns on the shoe, and supplemented with white fabric paint to highlight the dots in the brogueing. We’re not sure what the turquoise pen is in the photo.
If you’re going to Lindy Focus, you’ll get to see the green pair and red pair in person – nice job, ladies!

So cute! And probably a lot cheaper than my Wingtip Vans!
Those Vans are pretty sweet, though!
Hey, I just happened upon your post and thought I would let you know that the full tutorial is here http://momspark.net/faux-painted-oxfords-diy/. The teal pen I used is a water soluble fabric marking pen.
It is in Japanese. 🙂
