last weekend i decided to pretty up a pair of plain slip on shoes i have by making up some felt flower clip-on's. i think felt is just the cutest medium for crafting, if you're lucky and have access to good quality felt it will have a really nice thickness and will come in just about any color you dream. i got my gorgeous felt from little sparrow.
add a cute button if you like
i made up this bold little flower design and if you'd like to make one too, click here for a printable pattern. the flower clip-on is quick, easy and its versatile. clip it on your hair one day, and the next try it on your lapel. i'm sure you could think of a thousand more uses, but to start with try your clip on flowers on:
✽ shoes✽ hair✽ bag✽ pockets✽ lapels
why settle for accessories that look like everyone else's when you can craft a little something to set you apart from the crowd? and even better, its no trouble if you change your mind: just un-clip them!
did i mention you can make them without sewing? you can either sew them onto the hair clips or use a hot glue gun if you're staunchly anti-sew.
sewing not necessary!
if you use my pattern, i'd love you to show your results with a link in the comments. happy DIYing!
