How to: Shoe bag

Shoe-a-holics this project is for you! Shoes can be hard to store away especially if they not ones you wear everyday, where do you put them all?

How about this shoe bag made for all your special shoes which can be stored in a cupboard or wardrobe? This is the most handiest bag to hide the shoe clutter.

For this project you will need:

Step 1: Create your image in Silhouette studio or your cutting machine programme. Alternatively, you could print off a template to draw around and cut out.

Step 2: Place the vinyl shiny side down onto the cutting mat and send your designs to be cut.

If you are hand cutting the vinyl, draw around your template onto the back (non shiny side) of the vinyl. You can then cut this out with scissors making sure all the pen marks have been cut away.

Step 3: If you have machine cut your design, weed out the access vinyl to reveal your shoe.

Step 4: Peel the plastic carrier off of the HappyGlitter vinyl and hole punch some stars in different sizes. This will add some extra sparkle to your project.

Step 5: Decide on your placement for the vinyl to get an idea of the positioning.

Step 6: Pre- press your bag to eliminate all creases and moisture within the fabric. Then add your shoe shiny side up onto the bag, add greaseproof paper and press.

Heat press: Temperature: 150 degrees. Time: 10 seconds

Iron: Temperature: 2 dot setting. Time: 10 seconds across the design in sections.

Step 7: Once cool to touch peel away the plastic carrier.

Step 8: We then added the stars in place and added greaseproof paper and pressed again as before.

You now have the perfect personalised bag for all your special shoes to keep neatly stored away. It's almost like a special dust bag. This would be adorable for children's shoe bags too, whether it's for ballet pumps or football boots. We couldn't resist adding the disco balls to the ends too as an extra touch for all the party shoes.
