Tuesday Tutorial: Shabby Flower Crib Shoes

Shabby Flower Shoes AdI think our baby crib shoes are super cute without any added details. However, I am a crafter, and I’m always getting the urge to jazz things up a bit, you know? Make something mine so to speak. So today I thought I would show you how to jazz those shoes up a bit!

Materials Needed:

Crib Shoes of your choice (I chose red/white dot for this tutorial)

2 Shabby Flowers (I’m using white for this tutuorial)

2 Center Embellishments (I picked red/white dot fabric covered centers)

2 Felt Circles (I’m using white for this tutuorial)

Glue Gun

Shabby Flower Shoes 1Step One:

Using your glue gun, squeeze a small dab of hot glue onto one of your felt circles, then quickly and carefully stick it to the center back of one of your shabby flowers. (Be careful not to burn your fingers.)

Shabby Flower Shoes 2Step Two:

Now squeeze a small dab of hot glue onto your center embellishment and then stick it into the center front of your shabby flower. Don’t try putting the glue onto the flower. It will cause issues with the flowers sticking to itself and make a mess.

Shabby Flower Shoes 3Step Three:

Next, place a bit of hot glue on the back of the felt circle that you glued onto the back of your flower. Then, stick the flower assembly to the shoe like so.

Isn’t that so super cute? And easy? Don’t you just want to make more? I did! So, I made a few more. I did these all in 0-3 mos size, but we do carry the crib shoes in sizes from 0-12 months. Aren’t they cute?

Tuesday Tutorial: Easy Flower Headband Tutorial

Flower Embell HB Tutorial Announcement

Today I’m going to teach you how to make these super easy flower headbands. These would make a unique and inexpensive gift for a baby shower or even for a little girl’s birthday party.

Materials Needed:

Flower Embell HB Supplies

Flower Embellishments

Headbands (Any of our headbands would work, but I chose to work with the lace headbands and the wide lace headbands.)

Felt Circles

Hot Glue Gun

Step One:

Squeeze a small dob of hot glue in the center of the backside on one of your flower embellishments. Then, place one of your felt circles onto the glue as shown below. Be careful when using hot glue. It is really easy to get a nasty burn.Flower Embell HB Step One Collage

Step Two:

Place another dob of hot glue on the grosgrain loop of the wide lace headband. Or, if you are working with another type of headband, I like to place my glue where the headband is sewn together so that piece won’t show anymore.

Then, place the felt circle on the backside of your flower embellishment into the hot glue against your headband.
