R2D2 Shoes Tutorial

Over at Twin Dragonfly Designs we have been sharing our thrifty, do-it-yourself back to school style all month long.  These shoes top the list of favorites for my boys. 

Learn how to make these adorable R2D2 Inspired Canvas Shoes!

We love Star Wars and anytime that we can combine our love with something to wear we are all over it!  Here’s how you can showcase your geekery too..

R2D2 Canvas Shoes Tutorial

Start with a plain pair of runners.  These ones can be found at Old Navy for $10.  I chose to use blue shoes for R2D2 rather than white {the base colour of R2D2} because… well… I am a mom of boys.  Giving boys white shoes to wear is beyond silly in this house *wink*.

Next sketch an R2D2 design onto each shoe using an erasable fabric marker or piece of chalk.

Now paint in the background of the image with light grey acrylic paint.  You may choose to add a fabric paint medium to the acrylic paint but I find that it is not necessary.

Add details in dark grey, red, blue and outline the image with black three dimensional fabric paint.  Allow to dry completely for at least 24 hours before wearing.
