Britain is (finally!) enjoying a bit of sunshine and warmth, which can be a perfect time to sport your summer style … and flowers ☺
Whilst leather flowers might not be necessarily associated with summer, one of their applications is particularly great for summer. I am talking about leather flower shoe clips, a firm favourite of mine.
Leather flower shoe clips are ideal for decorating plain court shoes or peep-toes, or in fact any pair of your favourite shoes that could benefit from jazzing up.
Although not all types of leather flowers can be successfully used for shoe clips from the technical side, there are a lot of them that make stunning leather shoe clips. Think sunflowers, dahlias, daisies, gerberas, cornflowers, certain roses, chrysanthemums, camellias and many others. In other words the suitable flowers have to have a relatively flat underside to stand a chance to be successfully transformed into shoe clips.
To make your first pair of leather flower shoe clips follow our detailed step-by-step tutorial on leather gardenia shoe clips. Not only do you learn how to make leather gardenias, the tutorial will reveal the mystery behind turning flowers into wearable shoe clips once and for all.
Once you’ve mastered the leather gardenia shoe clips, you can start creating other flower shoe clips, like Leather Dahlia, Leather Chrysanthemum, Leather Sunflower, Leather Gerbera or Camellia to name a few.

Although we’ve been talking about leather flowers for shoe clips, it’s worth mentioning that silk flowers are perfectly suitable for this too, same rules about the choice of flowers applied.
Velvet camellias, silk sunflowers, satin daisies and gerberas – the sky is the limit here. Think about embroidering the centres of your flowers like daisies with beads for a more elegant and sophisticated look.
