Decorate Your Shoes
AQS Publishing; $19.95
In 2011 at the AQS show in Paducah, Annmart Berendse got a lot of notice for her shoes. These were not ordinary shoes. What were originally white leather clogs were now filled with patchwork patterns. The attention led to her first book about creating fun, decorated shoes. With 11 different designs, she teaches you how to paint canvas, rubber or vinyl, and leather (man made or natural) shoes. In addition to your shoes as a canvas, other supplies you’ll need include a Sharpie® marker and either fabric or leather paints, as well as some embellishments. Some of the designs include the log cabin, simple patchwork, Mariner’s Compass, and intricate looking feathers. If you want to make a statement head to toe, give this a try.
