Inspired by Loretta at The Urchin Collective, and having always wanted to try my hand at some fabric dying, here is my first DIY attempt in a while:
White Walnut Sand-shoes - foraged for a measly $8.00 from the local op shop.
Dunked them in the bubbling brew of blue dye...
Attempted to keep the toe of the shoe out of the dye in order to create a tie-dyed effect; but it was a fiddly and hot exercise, so not overly successful...
Not the worst first attempt, but certainly some room for improvement!
Might give some pillow cases a try next.
