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.

What talent! I'm always looking for new ideas, think I'll give it a try. DGD(9) would love to try this too.

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!
