Here's how...
1. Cut out abstract shapes from the vinyl.
2. Place pieces onto shoe, carefully lay fabric over the vinyl, and gently hold iron on top for 30 seconds.
3. Carefully check to see if vinyl has adhered. If not, iron for a bit longer.
4. Peel off top plastic layer from vinyl.

I love how it adds a splash of color to a plain pair of sneakers! It's a great way to spruce up an older pair of shoes or customize a newer set to match your unique style. If you make them, be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see! Enjoy, and happy Friday!
