I've seen several different versions of attachable shoe accessories.  I love the idea so I thought I would give it a shot.

You need:

    Scrap fabric
    Various sized buttons
    Hot glue gun

I took the larger buttons and glued them to the backside of the fabric.  I then cut around the button, leaving enough material to fold over the backs of the buttons. 

I folded the material around the back of the button and glued it down. 

I took the smaller red buttons and lined up the holes with the larger button's holes.  I then sewed the small buttons to the larger ones just like you would sew a button to fabric.  You can always cover the small button with fabric too.

Attaching the buttons to the shoes was simple.  I simple ran and needle and thread through the fabric underneath the button.  I then wrapped the thread under and around the bridge above the toe and then ran the needle and thread through the other side of the button.  I did this until the button was secure and then knotted the thread.  The buttons can be removed easily and without any damage to the shoe.

Simple, but inspired. Wonderful looking shoes now.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
