DIY Shoe clips


Well, it did take me a while to post my first DIY! I must admit taking photos and making the DIY presentable is quite a challenge! Without any further ado.. I present to you.. Shoe clips! Ta ta ta ta taaaaaa!

Shoe clips are all over pinterest.. My sister bought this pair of black flats..I decided to make my own when I saw how dull they were..

I hear ya all nodding your heads in agreement. Now I wanted to make this using the stuff I had at home. So I used bell clips to make them.. and they worked like a charm! I decided to make a clip with a rosette on it. You can find plenty of tutorials to see how to make the rosettes. So I am just going to get to the part of using the bell clips. Here are my pretty rosettes!

What was difficult about making them you ask? Making two that look similar.
I then cut two circles of felt to place my rosettes on. To place the bell clips:

Step 1:Slip the clip though the felt circle

Step 2: Stitch the small part of the clip to the felt. It doesn't have to be very tidy. Remember not to run the stitch thro the big part of the bell clip.

Step 3: Apply fabric glue to the side with the small part and glue the rosette onto it. Stitch the edges of the felt circle to the rosette and.

Step 4: You are now done!

Wear it now your shoes and admire your work! I followed similar steps to make these bows.

Here they are sitting pretty..
So here it was... first DIY from me to you! Really hope you enjoyed it!
