Homemade 50’s Saddle Locks

Homemade Saddle Locks

Every year my nieces have a father daughter dance for Valentines day. Each dance has a different unique theme. This year the theme was a 50’s sock hop!

Recently, a friend of mine sent me a link to a pair of keds that had been drawn on with a Sharpie to look like Oxfords. I was dying to try it out myself! And what better excuse than Saddle Locks for my nieces dance. I took a few pictures along the way so that you could try the look out for yourself!

Getting started…All you’ll need is a Sharpie and a pair of fresh white kicks!


I started by adding the circles and zigzags that begin the design.


Once I finished the out line, all that was left was to fill in the space in between.
