Can you apply the rhinestones to some of the watermarked area?  Try and camouflage the water marks.

I’m sure no one is going to notice as much as you. It is noticeable, but how good of a look will people really have? Especially if you have rhinestones on them.

What if you try do another coat of the dye?  That might help cover up the water stains.  You could also try to blot the color on instead of dipping them so maybe you could get a more even color.

They look so much better.  I honestly can’t believe it worked out so well, i’m going to have to remember what you did!  I didn’t think you could dye your own shoes-AWESOME.

Haha good luck with your niece!

@ginnyc:  lol gotta love opinionated kids!  My niece was my flower girl and she’s an Angels “fan” (i.e. Mom told her that the Angels had pink shirts and she was sold… even though EVERY team sells pink shirts for little girls… lol) and my colors were Dodger blue and white (well ok, really just cobalt blue and white, but my SIL made a point of mentioning that they were Dodger colors to my niece and it went on from there).  This was a point of contention for my then 6 year old niece who was adamantly against being seen in Dodgers colors.  *sigh*  lol  I believe I told her that she could chose her colors when she was old enough to get married.  Ok so that probably went over her 6 year old head.  lol  Good thing I was planning on having her in sky blue anyway…. ๐Ÿ˜›

The shoes look great now btw!

The shoes look great!  The re-dying was the best idea. For the record, my sister also told me the navy blue shoes I’ve picked won’t go with my ivory dress.

Those look great! Good job fixing them! ๐Ÿ™‚ Where did you buy your dyables? So far I’m wearing Pearl colored flip flops from Old Navy. I REALLY want blue shoes (especially the exact color you ended up with because they’re the color of by bridesmaids dresses), but I don’t want to pay the price from David’s Bridal!
