Tulip Fabric Markers and Canvas Shoes

First I want to mention something about the mini minion.  After some play time with him the sharpie marker is starting to wear and fade off.  So I guess we will have to try and put a top coat over the marker or find a different way to decorate the finger puppet.  Back to the drawing board!! 

Okay now to the project I would like to show today. My 7 year old daughter did this a few months ago.  She wanted a pair of tennis shoes like the Sketchers but with her own design and flair.  So one pair of canvas tennis shoes and a package of Tulip Fabric markers and this is what she did.

 She was very proud of them, as I was of her.  The hardest part was locating the canvas shoes.  Plain white canvas shoes are hard to find.

A Mini Minion!!

I am new at blogging and this is my first craft blog, so sorry for any errors. 
My family really loves the "Despicable Me" movie and we are having trouble finding and toys, only plush minions.
So I decided to make a mini minion.  Here is how I did it.  

Using some Sharpie markers:

A happy faced finger puppet.  I am sorry I forgot to take a photo before I painted his hands.   So you will paint the hands black.

Then paint some blue overalls on him.

Then add the goggles and hair.  All finished, and you have a cute little minion finger puppet. 

The kids loved him!  So I will have to make some more. 
 I hope you have enjoyed my craft project.  I won't be an everyday blogger but I do plan to post more.  Love to see your take on this and thank you so much!
