Cut velcro into smaller circles then the felt
Embellishment or Ribbon Sandals

Attach the flower or embellishment to the elastic sandal.Fluffy Petal Flower
For a fluffy petal flower cut the satin into 16 circles. Cut netting into 16 circles, 8 for each sandal.
Prepare 2 sandals as directed above EXCEPT cut the felt circle into a 2″ diameter
To form a petal, place one netting circle on top of a satin circle
Fold in half, keeping them together
Fold the circles in half again
Snip the end about 1/8″ so it will not add bulk to the flower
Put a spot of hot glue on the tip
Place with the tip of the petal in the center of the felt circle
Make another petal and place opposite
Repeat with 2 more petals as shown here
Continue with petals, alternating to overlay where the previous petals were placed. This will cause them to stand up and fluff.
On the back side, glue the felt circle, then a piece of velcro.
Repeat these steps to make another fluffy flower to match
Now you have a fluffy petal flower baby sandal!
