I bought these imitation high top converse shoes from Wal-Mart for only $3! Any brand of high top converse shaped shoes will do but these were such a great deal Next I bought a dollar bottle of red puff paint while I was at Wal-Mart. This project doesn’t require a lot of paint so the small bottle did well for me.

I started by making a stencil from the poke-ball symbol I found online. I decided to use an exacto knife to cut it out of cardboard for easy tracing. After I had my outline I carefully traced it with the puff paint then filled it in.

A cute pair of Pokemon inspired shoes to wear while you’re out catching them all!


Upcycle short shirt

I bought this cute simple shirt during a Wet Seal sale online and got it for about $5. The problem is the first time I washed it the bottom of the shirt shrunk upwards causing it to be far to short on me. I still liked the shirt and the only problem was the length so I decided to just add some lace to the bottom to get that length back.

I measured how many yards of lace I needed and headed to Hobby Lobby. Being the savvy shopper I am I brought along my 40% off coupon. You can almost always find a Hobby Lobby coupon online or from their E-mails.

This is such a quick and easy fix that adds a whole new dimension to the shirt! I pinned the lace along the bottom hem starting in the back. I overlaid the lace in the back to sew it together. Then I sewed along the existing hem to hide my new threads to add the lace.

No need to toss out a shirt because it shrunk a bit, just be creative and add to it!
