There is a customisation thread here

http://www.thefashionspot.com/forums...ions-5290.html

I'm sure at some stage someone on it asked a similar question to yours. If you can't find the post, maybe you could ask your question on that thread?

I'm customizing a bike for my daughters 4 year birthday.. I thought about photographing the process but forgot

Sofar I've stripped it of all the ugly labels/stickers and spraypainted *gold* everything that was black .. the rest of the bike is babypink and white.. very girly girly..

I need to spray a second layer of gold and finally I've got roughly 400 swarowski crytals (in gold, icecrystal and pink) to glue to the bike (If only I can find where I put them!!!)

hi i dont know if this is the right place to post this, but i recently bought a pair of orange flats from zara, similar to these.
kaboodle.com
i really have found nothing to wear with them - color wise - but they're actually nice looking and comfortable. they're 50% of textile it says on the tag. is there a way to dye those shoes black?

I would just dye them with RIT dye it always works great on anything that I have done. If anyone has better suggestions you should listen to them I have never dyed shoes.

I'm starting college this summer and I want an awesome bag to take around campus. I found this old backpack of my brothers, and I decided I'm going to stud it! Right now it's just like this:
http://i656.photobucket.com/albums/u...e/4E51EA3A.jpg

I'm going to go to the craft store this week...any suggestions on what type of studs? Should I do gold or silver? or both?! Pyramid or round or flat or what?! And, should I glue them on or should I actually use all the prongs and kill my fingers? I'd love some advice from a studding expert, as I see many of you are!

i once dyed a pair of denim flip flops and i totally ruined them. i thought since they were denim i could use regular clothing dye but the result was awful. i mena the color was great but they were ruined because they werent sewn together but glued and the glue didnt hold the hot water so....dont do it that way

I agree don't dye them. Just cover them over with another fabric.
Hunt out the fabric stores in your area and go nuts!!! If you don't have any good quality places near, try Tessuti fabrics online. They have some really beautiful pieces

the only solution i can think of is that maybe you can use a bleach solution to strip out the bright orange from your shoes.

Try 5 parts of water for every one of bleach and put it in a spray bottle, carefully spray waiting a few seconds from layer to layer to set until desired color. Then you can use a regular shoe polish in black, the ones that come in a bottle with a ready to use sponge on the top, with thin coats over and over until it looks nice. these have some glossy shine since they are made for leather otherwise your shoes would end up looking opaque.
Just never ever submerge them into water or similar

let us know how it worked out.

I already did something like this. i did it for my sister like a million years ago. i did a pretty simple butterfly just an outline but didnt use pliers or anything like that and messed up my fingers since it was a long time ago some studs are missing but you can pretty much see the butterfly.

it gave life to a pretty much boring cord backpack. i used golden round top studs because i wanted them to look feminine and gold was best suited for the color of the backpack but that depends on how you want you backpack to look.

I am shredding a t right now but I am going to try and do the whole thing and then reattach the threads to make something rodarte-ish I am still leaving some of the vertical threads intact to hold it together.
