Shoes to Cherry-ish

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:

-HappyFlex – Green and Signal Red

-HappyGlitter- White

-Scissors

-Paper

-Pen

-Iron or Heat Press

-Greaseproof paper

-Shoes

Step 1:

Draw your cherry shape onto paper and cut this out ready to use for a stencil.

Step 2:

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.

Step 3:

Cut your pieces out ready to add to the shoe.

Step 4:

Pre-heat your iron on the 2 dot setting and pre-press the fabric on your shoes.

Step 5:

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.

Step 6:

Peel off the top layer of plastic while warm.

Step 7:

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.
