Here is the Baby Shoe Bouquet tutorial I promised you.
It is from an idea that Dawn, at The Feathered Nest
had for my teabag roses, and baby shoes.
Start with a baby shoe.
Vintage is nice, but if you do not have vintage,
try my tutorial HERE to make on look vintage.
You will also need some teabag roses.
After you have aged your shoe, stuff it almost full of tissue, or stuffing.
This is to keep the nice shape of the shoe.
Now, take your 20 or so roses you have made,
and put 3-5 in cheesecloth and pull it up around them a bit.
It makes a little bouquet.
These can be used by themselves, or for your shoe.
Start gluing the little bundles into your shoe,
letting some of the cheesecloth poke up out of them,
and some hang down over side of shoe.
Continue till shoe is full, gluing one bundle to another as you go.
Trim any cheesecloth off that you do not want.
To finish, I added a piece of cotton lace trim over the laces,
Then glued buttons to it.
I tied a bow at this side.
So, there you have it.
A sweet little baby shoe rose bouquet.
(for those observant people out there who noticed
this is a different shoe than I started with, you are right.
I had this one all done, then realized I had taken no pics!
This is actually one of my 'new turned vintage' shoes.)
More to come with different style roses.
A different look than this one. =)
Please, let me know if you do up any of my tutorials.
I would love to feature what you have done.
Hope you are enjoying your day.
(Oh, and I have just finished something new!!!
I cannot wait to show you!)
PS I may have already posted this, but could not find it,
so, hope it is not a rerun for you. =)
