So this delivery package arrived recently!
The girls were so excited to get a pair of shoes each, a blank canvas with infinite possibilities! Squiggle Doodle carries a wide range of products, including tees, baby rompers, pencilcases and blank canvas tote bags!
I googled for a few designs drawn on canvas shoes and B chose to modify a black and white design of a girl and a cat. “I don’t want a cat. Can you draw a boy?” So a boy-girl pair it was. I drew it in pencil first as advised on their helpful “how to” page. Then I drew the outline with a steady hand and firm strokes with the black fabric marker, and let B colour it!
She happily chose the colours of their clothes and carefully filled them in…… What’s very important to note is to cap the specially manufactured fabric markers tightly, so that they don’t dry up. I was impressed with how bright and vivid the colours were!
K and I brainstormed on what to draw on her pair and she chose a rainbow. I googled for fluffy cloud designs and here’s the result! It turned out better than I had imagined. I wouldn’t mind wearing an adult pair in this design too, haha!
We had so much fun with this little art project that had so much practical use. Kids wear out their shoes so fast, so it’s always great to make an extra pair. And it’s a bonus to be able to strut around, modelling their own one-of-a-kind designs.
B insisted on wearing her shoes to kindy the very next day. Her little friends asked, “Did you draw those yourself? Wow!” Definitely made her so pleased.
I had added watermelon slices because it’s one of her favourite fruits.
You could doodle on it to look like this!
