That’s right, girlfriends. Another installment of Craft My Flats is coming to a computer screen near you. If you don’t like shoes…then what the heck happened to you as a child. Shoes are the solution to every problem. It’s a fact. They are the universal bandaid…and if you add a little craftiness to your shoes, then you are the most awesome. If you craft some pineapples on your shoes, well…you have just won the day. How about we get started on winning the day.

DIY Pineapple Shoe Clips | Damask LoveHow cute are these! I am really loving how well the Explore cuts through tooling leather. It opens up a ton of options for creating wearable and durable DIYs.  Can’t wait to hear what you think about today’s shoe clips…and I’d love to hear guesses of what you think next week’s shoe clips will look like!

  1. This series is making it abundantly clear that I do not have nearly enough flats in my life! Thanks for showing me the error of my ways. 😉

  2. Ok so my guess for your next flats is 1. Flamingos 2. Seashell, beachy, nautical theme. 3. Butterflies.
    Actually I would love to see you do all three ideas. #2 could be worked into alot of projects, seashell, anchor, dolphins, lighthouses, jelly fish, octopuses ……. need I say more. Love your flats. Guess I need to go shoe shopping
