At left, I tried again with those damn green espadrilles! No luck tho, I even changed the laces but to no avail--THEY JUST DON'T WORK! I am going to try and dye them now!
At right, is the end result. But on closer examination, I think the print is a little poopy. So I think I'll dye that dress too--it was a thrift shop find, so no pain if it fails!
Can't wait for the show!
