Have you noticed classic polka dots seem to be transforming into teeny weeny icons ? It seems to be everywhere at the moment : mini boats, anchors, birds, fruit… Adorable ! So I had to give it a go and because we’re celebrating picnics this month I went for bees… Yeah, I know we hate ‘em when they’re hanging around the jam tarts but you gotta admit mini bumble bees are cuddly and cute when they’re on your shoes ^^
As a bonus : these espadrills took literally 10 minutes to make. So they’re cheap as chips, adorably cute and EASY ! What else could you ask for ?! Ladybirds, maybe ? Oh I might show you some of them soon, too ;-)
Dip your pencil’s rubber in the nail polish (IMAGE 1) and use it as a stamp to pattern your shoes all over (IMAGE 2 & 3). Try and keep the print regular and feel free to do half dots at the sides as if the fabric was really printed and cut to make us the espadrills.
To draw your bees, just go for something simple. I took the main characteristics of a bee (IMAGE 4) and simply drew them on with a marker pen (IMAGE 5). Cover each dot (IMAGE 6) and you’re done !
Gotta go ! Bzzzzzzzzzzz
