Getting Crafty | Canvas Shoe "Painting"

I came across this idea on Pinterest a while back. I thought it would be a simple and creative way to spend an afternoon with the girls. Like most of the things I pin, my intention and my execution are often miles apart. However, we finally got around to pulling it together on one of our more recent "hot rain" days. All said, it took us about 2-3 hours to complete the project. We listened to a book on CD while we sat around the kitchen/craft table working. Both girls needed help with tracing the pattern onto the shoes and I ended up really doing this part for them. Piper got bored tired of coloring in her chevrons and both Geneva and I finished executing her vision as she directed the color choices. I think they turned out great and we've all worn them out and about already!
