do it yourself (!)...

hello again friends! well as i've said before... i could sit and do art's n craft's all day long and be the happiest gal in the world (!). but since i've been a busy little bee these days, my "to-do" project list is becoming longer then my "to-done" project list. however, these funky color-blocked moccasins are going straight to the top of my list! they're perfect for fall AND would be the perfect cozy shoe to go w. my new grey denim skinny's i recently picked up from Tar-jet' (Target)... see post here.

*see more fun crafty projects you can make at home... here!
** i have to credit the uber-FABULOUS ladies at Honestly... wtf for this fun colorful project. make sure to check these chicks out. they're pretty rad. actually very rad.

// martha stewart wishes she had a pair of these puppies! //
what you'll need:
1 pair of killer suede moccasins (check out Minnetonka Moccasins)
a pair of paintbrushes (1 thick & 1 thin)
1 tube of Tulip Soft Fabric Paint 
(this Tulip Soft paint is suppose to be very flexible once dry... perfect!)

to paint the tops of the moccasins, the fringe will have to be tucked under. simply untie the bow, pull the suede strings out of all the holes (note how it is assembled), and fold the flap under.

start by making a test patch near one of the holes, as this part will be covered and it’s a great way to get comfortable with your brush and paint. once you’re ready to tackle the rest, paint the inside edge of the moccasin with the small brush. then, switch to the large brush to fill in the rest. finish it with another layer or two for maximum color.

let dry for at least 2 hours and reassemble the fringe to reveal your new pair of SICK color block mocs!

are you going to try this at home???
i hope so! XO
