Crafty Ribbons Vintage Polka Dot Shoe Clips

Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am with some more shoe clips that I have made to accessorise my new vintage dresses from Lindy Bop :) I used Crafty Ribbons Basics to Go Grosgrain ribbons, Crafty Ribbons Polka Dot Ribbon, beads and shoe clip blanks.
I started by gluing four black grosgrain ribbons with a fold in the middle of the back, then two of the white polka dot. I used a peg to make sure they dried securely.

I then glued two of the black ribbons into a bow shape (not tying a knot keeps the bow from being too bulky!) and then added the white polka dot in the centre with the black ribbons peeking out from behind it.  I repeated this with the other side.

I then sewed a line of seed beads in the centre using a beading needle. Lastly I glued onto the shoe clips using a glue gun.

I love these because you can wear them on any shoes, any time-and any where on the shoe! They don't damage your shoes so you can switch up basic shoes and make them really special and match your outfit!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
