Custom Converse

Arnt these cute! first size pink Converse in little size 4
Little C has had these a few weeks now and they kept calling me to pretty them up.



So on Saturday I spent a lovely sunny afternoon in my little studio watching C and her daddy tend all the new life in the garden that is suddenly sprouting up.........and I set to work.

I still have some little snips of that pretty rose fabric left over from her douvet cover re-make which I also used in the tea party and dolls pram projects

So I started with that for inspiration


and chose some beautiful co-ordinating pale blue variegated DMC cotton Perle and stitched around the edge.


then some bullion knot roses, with a touch of crimson in the middle.

(can you see my rose theme is getting everywhere)


 I found the last of some beautiful hand dyed Oliver Twist stranded cotton in shades of blue and green....perfect.... and I had just enough left for this little project.

Replace the laces with beautiful pale green satin ribbon


 each side is unique



and now they are very pretty & girly


I had so many ideas of different way to customise these little cuties but it took my rose theme to get me inspired to do it!

These are my son Harry's


he hasn't worn them very much and now sadly he has outgrown them :(
shame :(
Not to worry, ..........they fit me! :)
Watch this space!
