My cherry obsession started with making cherry Pom poms and now I can’t stop. I have seen so many cherry themed gifts, clothes, and jewelry on the highstreet but I wanted to create something myself so it was completely unique. These pinstriped fabric flip-flops caught my eye and of course I had to add some vinyl cherries to them. I think these would be great for a summer holiday as they are bright and cheery. I’ve written the quick and easy steps so you can recreate them at home with iron-on vinyl.
For this project you will need:
-Iron or Heat Press
Draw your cherry shape onto paper and cut this out ready to use for a stencil.
Draw around your shapes onto the back of the vinyl, I drew one cherry one way and then turned the stencil over to draw the cherry the opposite way.
Cut your pieces out ready to add to the shoe.
Pre-heat your iron on the 2 dot setting and pre-press the fabric on your shoes.
Add a happy pillow or fabric into your shoe to create a flat even surface. Place your green stalk (HappyFlex) on the shoe first, then add greaseproof paper on top and press for 10 seconds.
Peel off the top layer of plastic while warm.
Repeat steps 5-6 with the cherries and then with the glitter vinyl pieces.
Your shoes now have a pop of colour ready for summer!
How great would a pair of shoes be for a hen do or a party too? You could add names of slogans to them for that personalized touch.
