Children's Crafts - Painted Canvas Shoes

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - Painted Canvas Shoes from www.walkaboutcrafts.comYou will need:
Pair of plan white canvas shoes
Fabric pens or puff paints
Scrap of white cotton fabric
Hair dryer, for drying puff paint

1. Test out the puff paints on a clean scrap of fabric. Place the fabric on newspaper. Hold the puff paint close to the material and gently squeeze the paint out. Keep a gentle even pressure on the paint tube – do not squeeze too hard or you will be force the paint out in big blobs.

2. Fabric pens are easier to use. Practise with them on a scrap of fabric too.

3. Remove the laces from the shoes. Place the shoes on some newspaper and draw your designs on them. Copy the patterns in the picture on the previous page or invent your own unusual designs.

4. To dry the puff paints use a hair dryer on a low setting to blow warm air over your design. If the ink does not puff up, increase the heat from the hairdryer, or move it closer to the shoes.

5. For a cheerful finishing touch, swap the plain shoe laces for bright, new laces. Thread the laces into the shoes.
