OK, I have insanely decided to decorate a pair of plain white felt clogs for my mother. I have some beads and stuff and I trying to decide how best to fix them on. I do think sewing would be the best option but am open to suggestions. If I sew what thread would be good? Should I go for some clear 'invisible' thread? I suspect a small curved needle would be the best to use. I also have a vision of spirals made with some coloured wire I have, I think they might be best sewn on, sort of couched I think. There was a vague thought that I might paint them but I think the felt would just suck up the dye and then never dry and I couldn't 'fix' it so they would run in the rain! I think I'm mad but having bought the clogs and the bits and bobs I'd better complete the project or OH will get stroppy!
