decorate your shoes

The power of a flower!
So cute right? They are flower clips I did myself...who knew how cute it would make the shoe! At first I thought maybe it looks to crafty but not at all! When I went to the mall the other day all I saw were embelished shoes.
Like these:

Now, the only problem I have with these shoes is they are so freaking high!

so when I found these heels I knew just what to do with them.
I'll show you how I made the flower.

  This is the fabric I started with and cut it at 2 inches wide and about 20 inches long

Then I ironed it in half and put it thru the machine. Make sure you change your stitch length as much as you can. Mine goes to 4.5.
Make sure you leave a tail of thread so you can pull the thread to make the fabric gather...

(see) You just pick the top thread (or the bottom) and start pulling it and just continue to work your way down until the whole strip is gathered.
Now you are just going to wrap the gathered fabric into a circle (creating the flower) Then you are going to cut a fabric square to glue your flower on. ( i use a hot glue gun)
Once you have it glued on then just cut the excess fabric off then glue a clip to it.
And clip it to your shoes! How cute is that?
I love them!  Thanks for stopping by!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting!

You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
