Shoe Clips Rock!

3 Nov

OK so maybe not the most clever title, but it’s true!

If you don’t know what a shoe clip is prepare to have your mind blown!

Shoe clips are just like clip on earrings for your shoes, they allow you to reinvent your shoes over and over again with practically no cost to you at all! Not only are they completely removable they won’t damage your shoes!

Where can I get these little wonders of modern science you ask…well my friend we’ve got ’em!  Here.

And to get you started in the wonderful world of shoe clips here is an easy as pie tutorial for a sassy little pair of felt shoe clips!

You will need:

1 – 9″x 12″ sheet of white felt

White thread and sewing needle

Felt glue or hot glue

2 Crystal buttons, findings, or other accent piece.

2 shoe clips

Step 1:

Cut your felt into 2 -3″  circles, 2- 2″circles and 2- 1″ circles

Once cut stack on top of each other largest to smallest.

Step 2:

Using matching thread sew a circular shape in big loose stitches in the very center of your piece I have used contrasting thread for clarity.

Now pull the stitches tightly so that the flower curls and knot down to keep it in place.

Step 3:

Glue crystal or button into place with hot glue or felt glue.

Step 4:

Once glue is dry turn flower over and attach shoe clip by sewing the holes down similar to the way you would a button. Again I have used contrasting thread for clarity.

Step 5:

Enjoy your super fabulous new shoes! And repeat.

How cool are you!?!

    This must be an up and coming trend – just earlier this week I was talking about http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/2010//01/beckys-diy-shoeclips/ after seeing Violet Beau’s http://violetlebeaux.com/2010/09/bodyline-shoe-mod-tutorial-take. It seems that with a little imagination (and a heap of talent!) quite ordinary shoes can embellished and turned in to something really special and unique. Nice tutorial.
