I used salesman sample mini Mexican blankets and embroidery floss to mend and repair Converse sneakers. All this makes a funky, one of a kind pair of sneakers.
Step 1: The blankets and sneakers... a nice match
I have had some "salesman samples" of Mexican blankets that I received in a bulk estate sale for a while.
I kept looking for a way to use them, and I found a perfect way to upcycle them when I bought a $10 pair of white and pink High top Converse at a Salvation Army for $4.99.
