    I recently bought a shirt to try my zendoodling on. I hope it turns out half as great as your shoes.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Thanks so much for the info - I'll avoid the double permanent marker. I'd also heard of people using 2 coasts of Mod Podge after drawing on them, but I'd think either Scotchgard or a waterproofing spray would be best.

    Honestly! It is not as hard as it looks. Hardest part is starting--these are the first shoes I ever have done! You can do it too!
