...Shoe Flowers!


I came accross this cute tutorial on Cluck Cluck Sew and thought they might be nice to jazz up a pair of flats of mine!



 




Fabric Scraps
A button
Needle and thread
Scissors
An old pair of shoes
Printer Paper

SUCH an easy task!

Firstly, I chose a range of fabrics that I thought would look pretty together, as well as match my shoes

I then made up a template in word with different sized circles. This didn't actually work for me, but I used a couple of circles and just guessed sizes from there, then trimmed where I needed to.

Here are my circles.

The only reason I was so tight with cutting out circles on paper first was because I was making 2 matching flowers. If you're only making one, or a range of different fabric combinations, then there's no need for the tightness, just cut away!!!

Sew a cross in the middle through all of the layers to hold them together.


Then, sew a button on top!

Ta da!!!!







Depending what day it is, you may see this post at any of these fabulous parties

    1. Hey Linda! You're right, they would be perfect on little girls flats-then you could remove and chop and change for different sizes as she grows out of them!

  7. I love this! I have several pairs of blah flats...this is the perfect solution! Silly question: How did you attach them to the shoes? I was thinking a small bobby pin would allow me to swap them out, but was curious what you did. So glad to have found your lovely blog!

    1. Thanks Sarah! I'm so glad you enjoyed :)

      Guess what... you got it in one! I used bobby pins to fasten them to my flats!! I'll need to change my post.

      I just looped one through the knot in the back of the flower and they stay on just fine.

      Thanks so much for popping by!
