Lace Floral Shoe Clips

We printed clip art onto heat-transfer paper and ironed the designs onto fabric for this project.

Lace Floral Shoe Clips How-To
1. Print clip-art flowers on iron-on heat-transfer paper. Following the manufacturer's instructions, iron design onto silk organdy.

2. Cut out each clip-art flower with scissors. From one side, cut away a V shape that reaches to the center of the flower.

3. Trim about 6 millinery stamens so they are 1 inch in length. Slide stamens into center of flower. Fold stamens into an L shape, and glue cut ends to back of flower.

4. Pull corners of the V together, slightly overlapping; the fabric will form a cup shape. Use fabric glue to glue shut.

5. Print shoe petal template onto paper and cut out. Fold a square piece of organdy in half diagonally and then into thirds. Lay template on top of organdy. Lightly trace with a pencil. Repeat until you have 8 flowers for each corsage, and cut them out with scissors. Roll flower petal with your fingers to make edges curl.

6. For each shoe clip, stack 8 flowers, and sew together at center. Sew a paper clip to bottom of flower stack. Glue or stitch clip-art flower to top of flower stack using a dab of fabric glue.

7. Use paper clip to attach to shoe.

    When I looked for the template to make these flowers it says page not found. I looked for in in search, but it still said page not found! I reloaded the page and got the same thing. Has this been taken off the internet?

  • 7 Feb, 2011 sells a wide selection of outstanding and reasonably priced blank shoe clips that are perfect for this project. The clips have a super strong grip so the clip won't move around and can even be used on flip flops! Even though the clip is strong, they do not hurt your shoes or your foot. Check them out!
