I often blithely talk about how "busy" I am and it probably sounds like white noise at this point but the truth is I foolishly overextend myself, as most of us often do.
Some of you new to the blog may be excited to know that I am currently authoring a book with Interweave Press entitled "A Frock by Friday" which will teach beginners how to not only sew but design their own dresses. I'm really quite excited about this! But with all the duties of being a blogger I've found that I've fallen behind with my deadlines and so I'm going to be taking this month slower and focus on my author duties a bit more.
But don't delete me from your blogroll just yet! I will be doing another "themed" month. This month will be......drumroll....shoe clips! I guess you might have figured that out from the top photo. It's like sugar for your shoes, hence the name;) And I'm actually pretty excited about it. There are so many ideas swimming around in my head and organizing themselves into folders on my laptop that I don't think you'll even notice the extra work I'll be doing with the book.
Shoe clips are so FAST and easy which is why I think they will make a great theme for this month! I promise LOTS of bright yummy, pictures with "beaucoup bokeh" and cheap, charming ideas! You won't be sorry. Your shoe rack won't be sorry:)
You can find all the month's clips on my right sidebar under Shoe Sugar Month. And feel free to link to this theme using the button below.
1. Take the top of a Pringles lid and make two circles.
2. Take the bottom of a waterbottle and make another two circles.
3. Use the lid of the water bottle and make two more circles.
4. Make marks every 1".
5. Cut slits. Do this to all the other circles.
6. Cut out four leaves.
7. Hot glue pieces together then hot glue clip to backing.
