As promised.

I mentioned last week that I got a pair of thrifted shoes (fromĀ Buffalo Exchange in Ballard) and turned them into my new favorite pair. This time I used Lincoln Shoe Dye, (that I bought at this store in Ballard). My only tip from this round of dying would be to use something other than masking tape to cover the leather you don’t want dyed. Does that seem obvious? It does to me now. But unfortunately I used masking tape and I know for sure that the dye leaked under the tape. Thankfully the leather was black to begin with, so the brown dye won’t actually show. Phew. (If anyone has any tips on what the best method is for dying part of a shoe only, let me know.)
