{Pom Pom Shoe Clip Tutorial}

It's officially spring!!
and the weather here in FL is in agreement! 
Spring makes me want to "freshen up" everything I own!! :)

So I'm starting with some old flats ... 
I'm seeing shoe clips EVERYWHERE! 
They are so trendy!
It's the perfect way to spice up old bland shoes!

I can never seem to find the blank "shoe clips" at any craft stores.
{and i'm WAY too impatient to order them online}
So I just decided to come up with my own version!

Mine are inexpensive, super simple & very adorable.
What more could you want?

The Preppy Mom in me is LOVING seersucker!!

Want to make your own?


What you need:
- 2 Bobby Pins
- Hot Glue & Glue Sticks
- 10-12 Fabric Circles
- 2 Felt Circles

Now I cheated and used my Sizzix to cut out the circles (love.that.thing!) but you can definitely do them by hand, it will just take longer. My circles are about 2.5" in Diameter.

*edited: mext time I will trim the TOP part of the bobby pin -
so that it doesn't accidently show.You need the bottom the full length.







p.s. I found these flats for $3.99 at Goodwill.
They still had the Target tags! SCORE! 


So simple, right? :)
This whole project took about 10 minutes start to finish!
I can't wait to make all different kinds & colors!

  11. I was wearing my black flats out shopping today and ran across some of these (and didn't want to pay the price that was set), so I'm SUPER happy to see this! I'll have to show you once I get them made! You can also put them on flip flops if the band isn't too thick :)
