One of the best aspects of upcycling is the challenge of taking an item, with all its fabric and shape issues, and making it something new – so when i got this commission from Alice i was super pleased.
She bought these natty little sneakers (or daps as the Bristolians say) from e-bay (upcycling points!) and wanted some peacock feather stuff going on to make them a little more snazzy…i was happy to oblige. After a dramatic paint learning curve – painting shoes is another world from most apparel – and some serious placement pondering, this is how they turned out.
I’m stoked, and so was she!
