I love Uggs. I have several pairs of them. I have a couple of knock-offs, too. One such pair is rust colored that I bought several years ago at Costco. It is a nice and cozy pair, just like the real thing. The problem is I don’t like the color. At all. In the winter when it is wet and snowy or rainy, I wear them. I certainly wouldn’t wear my pretty lavender, pink, or turquoise ones. They would be ruined. The rust colored ones work perfectly for this, because we do have a lot of red dirt around here. However, I don’t spend a lot of time in the dirt, but rather in wet parking lots while shopping. When I dress in the morning, I look down at my feet and say, “You poor things, you need something cozy and CUTE!”
After wearing them as rust for years, I placed them in my studio with the intentions of not letting myself wear them again until they were ‘cutified’. Today, I began that project!
First, I began by drawing the design onto the boot. I paint tennis shoes frequently and this is just a little bit more area to paint, but just as fun.
These photos show the basic pattern that I am envisioning.
Then, I dug out all of my paints and discovered that I was out of white! Oh no! Well, that just meant a fun trip to Hobby Lobby to buy some. Thankfully, all 2 oz. bottles of fabric/craft paints were 30% off today. The trip to Hobby Lobby set me back, (I spend hours there looking at THINGS) enough that I didn’t get to the painting of the boots today. ~~
