|Cloth. Paper. Scissors.|
If you haven't gotten the latest issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors, it has the best article in it about decorating Converse!
Now, as this craze has sort of gotten big, I admit I have been a bit on the fence as to how I feel about these "hand painted" converse. But this issue talks about "parties" of sorts at three of the big Converse manufacturers in Soho, Boston, and Santa Monica ( of course nowhere near me). But you and a group of friends can go in with a piece of your art (something you made or isnt copyrighted) OR they have hundreds of patterns you can choose from... anyway, you have your art, you actually PICK a pair from every style of converse imaginable, and they proceed to heat transfer your art into the shoe!!! It is so cool to read about! Then they shuffle you into a craft room full of embellishments so you may decorate your shoes to your hearts content- or of course bring your own decor from home! I thought this was such a clever and fun idea... they dont list prices that I saw, so I am sure it is a pretty penny... but if an occasion presents itself that you can splurge a little with some of your besties, bounce this idea off them- and be sure and tell me how it goes!!!
