Do you need shoes to match an outfit? Or are your shoes too boring?
Here's a quick way to fancy them up!

You will need:

3. Glue the leather or felt to the side of the clip that will be on the inside of the shoe. This is to cushion the clip and make sure it wont rub a hole in your foot!

These are lovely. If you don't have the time to make them, you can buy them ready made at my website www.absolutelyaudrey.com. I have been making shoe clips for the past 7 years and I can't stop, it's addictive!

Wonderful! And just in time too: one of my buttons fell off my fav black flats. At first, I thought I had to buy a new button but hey, I can make my own clip, pop off the other button and add another clip to match! LOL

Thanks for the tutorial :D

This blog is very helpful for me. Now I can make shoes clip of my own. I also want to buy ready made shoe clips in UK. Can you suggest some locations in UK.
