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?

Throwback Thursday: Tied Ribbon Tutu Flip Flops Tutorial

This tutorial was first posted on our old blog back on June 12, 2014. These flip flops would make a great little activity for girl’s camp, sleepovers, family reunions, birthday parties, etc. They are easy to make, and there is no hot glue to mess with!

http://blog.alwaysunderpay.com/wp-content/uploads/Finito.jpgMaterials Needed:
3 Colors 3/8” Grosgrain Ribbon of Your Choice
3 Colors Tulle of Your Choice
Scissors
Flips Flops

http://blog.alwaysunderpay.com/wp-content/uploads/materials.jpg**Note**On the ribbon and tulle, this is a great way to use up random bits that you don’t have enough of for anything else. I think I only used 6 strips of each color, if that, on each flip flop.

Step One:
Start by cutting about 6 strips of each color in both the ribbon and the tulle. I cut mine to about 6”, but you can cut to whatever length you feel is long enough to tie onto the straps.

Step Two:
Just start tying the strips onto your flip flop. I did my in a pattern, but it is really not necessary. I did red, white, and blue (in that order). And I alternated between red ribbon, white tulle, blue ribbon or red tulle, white ribbon, blue tulle.

Step Three:
Keep tying ribbons onto your flip flop until you have each strap covered as much as pleases you. Now isn’t that pretty? … Lol it looks a bit of a hot mess right now, right :)?

Step Four:
Trim all of your ribbons and tulle to a shorter, more tutu looking length. Whatever looks good to you works. This is looking lots better!
