DIY COLOR BLOCK MINNETONKAS

I have been living in my Minnetonka mocs lately. They are so comfy and easy to slip on and off. Due to the fact that they rarely leave my feet (and the fact that they're a couple years old), they have been looking a little worse for the wear. I have been thinking about buying a new pair but decided to put it off a little while longer and spruce mine up instead.

I used this tutorial from Honestly...WTF and it worked beautifully. I really wanted to do a tangerine or sea foam green color block but I let little girl help me with the project and she was really, really pulling for the pink. Since I had a few other projects in mind that needed fabric paint (and because I couldn't make up my mind on a color), I bought a variety pack of "Scribbles" brand from Hobby Lobby ($19.00 for 20 colors, not bad with the 40% coupon). I don't have a lot of fabric paint experience, but the brand got the job done.
