I love birthdays! Today my darling celebrates his birthday, and because I do not want to spend this great day in front of the PC, I’ll write very briefly with another Do-It-Yourself tutorial for a detachable shoe decoration.
Since I tinkered my first flexible shoe clips, it seethes in me and my new ideas get no borders. Out from the last remnants of my old leather pants I made these shoe decorations with sequins, rhinestones, and studs. Since this is certainly not my last DIY project with shoes, I have to think about how to call these things. Until now, I call them “Shoe Decoration” Do you have an idea, perhaps? For any suggestions, I would be very grateful.
Material And Tools – For This DIY Project You Need
- Leather Fabric
- Velcro® strip
- Transparent yarn, sewing kit or sewing machine
DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions
DIY Step 1
First, we need to mark the forms of the straps on the fabric. The following measurements are required twice each:
– 32 x 4 cm
– 28 x 5 cm
– 22 x 2.5 cm
– 24 x 3 cm
DIY Step 2
Cut the straps.
DIY Step 3
Set the sewing machine on a loose zig-zag stitch.
DIY Step 4
Fold the straps in the center to the inside and stitch them. Several times I have stitched on it, as the leather is thus flatter and I was very pleased by the zig-zag pattern.
DIY Step 5
Now, put on a shoe and stuck the straps like in the picture. First stuck the wide strap around the heel with pins, then the lower strap, and then the front strap. I put on red shoes, so you can better see the straps.
DIY Step 6
For sticking together the straps for the second, you can now use the first straps as a template. Simply put the fixed ones underneath and stick together the second in the same positions.
DIY Step 7
The straps are sewn together now.
DIY Step 8
Now put the straps (above the heel) on the shoe, mark the correct position for the fastenings with pins and then attach the Velcro strips. I additionally sewed the Velcro strips by hand. You could theoretically take snaps, I feel it as unpleasant as they push me on the heel while walking.
