I sawsome no sew grosgrain bows made by Caroline on C.W. Frosting the other day. I was in love! They were so cute and super simple to make with great step by step instructions. I knew that I had to make them and I knew exactly what I wanted to use them for.
I had this pair of shoes that has been sitting in my “to do” pile for a long time. I liked how comfy they are but I felt like they were lacking any pizazz. I wanted to breathe some life into them so I would actually want to wear them again. I knew I wanted to make shoe clips but I didn’t have any good ideas until I saw the grosgrain bows.
I went to my ribbon stash and pulled out some black grosgrain ribbon and started cutting. I cut three different lengths (8, 6 1/2 and 3) and two pieces of each length. I made them slightly smaller than the ones Caroline made but it was only because I misread her 8 1/2 for 8 and then I had to make the other one smaller.
I left the lace off because I didn’t have any I thought worked with the bow. I used hot glue to glue everything together and attached a shoe clip to the back of each bow.
They were done in to time at all! It was so quick and easy!
This bow would also be perfect for a headband so when I get back on a headband kick I will be making these again.
I love how the bows really dressed up these shoes. It’s such a small change but with a big impact. I am loving them now and they will be perfect to wear with skirts and dresses so I can show off the cute embellishment.
