Flannel Shoe Clip Bow

By now everyone should know that I'm a vintage girl at heart and as much as I love my black ballet flats, there are some days when they need a little sprucing up. I was offered the opportunity to try out the shoe clips from The Buckle Boutique and I came up with these cute little wool flannel bows. They are so 1950's and so adorable! They require no sewing and with a little fabric glue they are ready to go. A perfect little fall accessory to fit into this years fall trends.

Cut (1)
length of wool felt at 6" x 1" and (1) 1" x 1/2".

Take the long piece and with the “back”
side facing up, dot a bit of glue at each end and fold them into the middle so
they touch. That has created the body of the bow.

  Pick up the bow and pinch it between
the pointer finger and thumb, this can be secured with fabric glue.

 Take the center wrap and place it
around the center of the body of the bow and secure it at the back with fabric glue.
 

Then glue the finished bow to the shoe
clip. Let the glue dry and that's it! So Simple, So Cute!


This is what the Buckle Boutique says about their awesome shoe clips!

Heavy Duty DIY Blank Metal Shoe Clips with Black Leatherette (6
pair or 12 pieces) - Our silver colored blank shoe clips are the
best available. They have a super strong but gentle grip that holds the
clip on most shoes, sandals, flip flops or accessories. 
 
The hinge on
this finding is very good!  It is not stiff and is strong enough to not
wiggle around or come apart.  Just right!  The clip base measures .75"
wide by .75" tall.  The circumference of the leatherette disk is 1.25".
 
These are the BEST
blank shoe clips on the market!  Then when leatherette is added, watch
out!  Best of all, they have been tested for lead and are in compliance
with the CPSC lead standards.  Documentation is available upon request.
