Bohemian Flower Pumps

Designed by: Amy Law
Skill Level: Beginner

Wear your art out and decorate yourself for a fashion statement that's truly unique. Iron-on threads and hot-fix sequins give you the look of embroidery without the time or talent - plus you can use them anywhere. Who would have thought you could "embroider" on readymade shoes? Use this technique for a Bohemian look or any costume that you need to make in a hurry.

Materials:

  • 1 pair of plain shoes
  • Fabric: 2 green prints for leaves, 1 color for flower
  • Kandi Crystal- 2 (7mm) Clear
  • Kreinik Iron-On #16 Braid 6200 Daffodil
  • Kreinik Iron-On 1/8" Ribbon in 6500 Hydrangea and 6300 Meadow
  • Fusible Webbing or Treasure Tape
  • Tools: Iron, teflon presscloth, scissors, fabric pencil

Instructions:

1. Turn on your iron to it's highest setting and allow it to heat up. Cut out your fabric pieces: three leaf shapes and two simple daisy shapes (4 petals each).

2.Use your Iron-On Ribbon to edge each of your fabric pieces: lay the thread at a starting point, cover with the Teflon press cloth, and press with your hot iron for several seconds until the thread adheres. Use the 6300 Meadow Green 1/8" Ribbon around the edges of each leaf shape and add one stripe of thread down their centers. Use the 6500 Hydrangea 1/8" Ribbon around the edges of your flower shapes.

3. To create the yellow stamen detail on your flower, use a piece of scrap fabric. Iron down the very end of your 6200 Daffodil #16 Braid. Fold the thread end into a closed loop and iron in place. Gently pull off the fabric while still warm. Cut the end leaving a 1" tail. Make 4 of these.

4. Begin assembling your flower. Iron your 4 stamen pieces onto your top flower shape, leaving the curled ends loose. Iron your crystal onto the center of the flower. (Place the crystal on your design and cover with your presscloth. Press with the iron to heat the crystals until they fuse with your fabric.)

5. Cut your fusible webbing or Treasure tape to the size of your leaves and flower pieces. Apply to the back of your fabric. Attach your two flower pieces together, so that the bottom petals show between the top petals. Decide how you want to arrange your leaves and flower, then iron them onto your shoe.

Repeat these instructions for your second shoe and get ready to step out in style!
