My baby niece Talia is celebrating a huge first birthday in May, so I wanted to make her something really special. I've always wanted to paint on some shoes, so I tried painting on some sneakers and found it is super easy to do! I'm lucky to have three baby girl nieces, so they all will be owners of original hand-painted kicks...the first pair I did for my niece Kate also had rhinestones, but since Talia is still just a baby I didn't think rhinestones would be safe. I painted a cute monkey character for Talia on pink and purple Converse...baby shoes are so cute! It's a little harder because there's not a lot of surface to work with, so I had to use extra small brushes. I think she'll look so cute wearing these.
