How to Make Button Embellishments for Shoes!comments (12) March 22nd, 2009
Adding fun button embellishment to shoes is such an easy style update! I stitched a little set of blue button rosettes with brown felt leaves to a pair of canvas skimmers, but you can also make these as shoe clips or glue them right on if your shoes have a leather or vinyl surface (see the variation ideas at the end of the post for more on these options).
What you'll need:
- A plain pair of shoes
- Two favorite buttons in a color that matches or contrasts your shoe
- Sharp scissors and pinking shears
- Remnants of felt in two coordinating colors (I suggest using wool felt or a thicker style of acrylic felt for this project)
- Needle and embroidery thread
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
