Monogram Shoes with Glitter Heat Transfer

I was so excited to apply a monogram on shoes! Yes, shoes! I knew I wanted to use Best Creation Inc. gold glitter heat transfer sheets. These packs have 2 - 8.5" x 11" sheets and are great for smaller projects.
I was lucky enough to find a pair of fabric covered flats. They have cute bows, however they needed to come off to allow room for the monogram. I carefully removed the bows with a seam ripper and they were ready for some monogramming so let's get started.

I downloaded the free font Monogramos  (free for personal use) to create the monogram letters.
The font cuts perfectly without any adjustments. You will however will need to use the "hide and contour" feature to design your monogram in Cricut's Design Space. When you type in your initials in Design Space remember to keep all the letters the same size before you make any changes. Properly align the initials before cutting, then prepare the gold glitter iron-on.

I find it easier to work with their app and I can quickly reference the image to help with weeding. I start on the outside and cut the excess as I work my way through the design.

I preheat the iron to the highest setting and aligned the image to shoes. Since the shoes are fabric with very little padding, the instructions to work a hard surface worked perfectly. I used a household iron at the highest setting. Not only did I cover the image with fabric, I also made sure it covered the sole of the shoe. I use a pillow case, it's thick enough to protect the plastic and thin enough to heat set the iron-on. Then press firmly for 30 seconds. Carefully pull back the plastic.

This was by far one of the easiest and fastest project I made so far using Best Creation glitter iron-on. 

I hope you enjoyed my project. Enjoy the rest of your week and please visit again tomorrow for a Halloween iron-on projects.
