I’m so excited for LOVE month here on my little old blog! I know having a “love” theme for February is not terribly original, but I think it will be fun, and give you some ideas of ways to celebrate “love” all year, not just on Valentines Day.
I’m also so stinkin’ excited about today’s project to kick off the month! I dreamt up these heart shoe clips while flying home from SLC last weekend. When things go well, I like to fly. (but ONLY when things go well.. I’m sure you agree). Quiet time on an airplane gives me lots of time to think and to sketch.
My girls used to call Valentine’s day “lovey dovey” day, and I thought it would be a cute name for today’s project.
They are magnetic shoe clips that you can use to dress up a pair of Ballet flats.
The fun part is they are totally removable! So you can switch them to other shoes.
The magnets make them easy on easy off, and they don’t leave any marks on your shoes. So those silver ballet flats can become “lucky” shamrock shoes come March.
Okay, before we start… you need to know one thing. I would NOT recommend this project for anyone with small children. These magnets are STRONG! That’s why they don’t fall off the shoes when you walk in them. I used the mighty magnets and I know that some children have been known to swallow them which can be very dangerous. My daughter is old enough that I know she won’t try to swallow the magnets, and I don’t have any little kids at home.
For this project you will need:
Red & White wool felt
4 mighty magnets in a disk shape
Heat n Bond Lite
and some scraps of fabric.
