Embellished ballerina flats Refashion challenge #3

I’m in love with how stinking cute these are.  They started out as little plain black flats and with just a few simple added touches I turned them into really cute Embellished ballerina flats.   I think I’m going to need a pair too.

Embellishing materials needed:

  • ribbon
  • buttons
  • scrap fabric
  • needle & thread
  • scissors
  • hot glue & gun
  • ballerina flats

To make the embellishment brooch I guess you could call it. I made a flat bow with no tails.  Glued it onto the shoe.  Then I took my scrap fabric and sewed a running stitch down one edge of the fabric.  Pulled the thread to gather the fabric creating my  flower.  Hot glued a button to the center of my fabric flower and then glued that onto the bow.  That’s it!  The ballerina flat is now embellished and ready to wear.

This is a fantastically simple and easy project anyone can do.  Hope this will inspire you to try to embellish your own shoes.

Everything is better with a little embellishment.

 Don’t you think?
