Velvet bow shoe clips tutorial

It’s the perfect antidote for fatigued footwear! These shoe clips will leave your kicks full of the joys of spring

Every now and then, your favourite party shoes just aren’t doing it for you, right? So add some pep to your step with our fab finishing touch.

You’ll need::

• 1/2m of velvet ribbon in your chosen colour, cut into the following strips: 9cm (dovetailing both ends), 16cm, 14.5cm, 5cm

• Fabric scissors

• Superglue/PVA glue

• A clip-on earring finding

Step 1 Assemble the two long strips of ribbon and glue into loops. They should fit nicely when placed on top of the dovetailed strip. Put the shortest of the two loops on top and glue together.

Step 2 You should be left with the shortest strip of ribbon. Wrap it around the middle of the assembled loops and add a blob of glue to fix it into place.

Step 3 Glue on a clip-on earring finding to the back of the bow, and you’re done! Just clip and go!
