I recently found a love for Monograms! I am not sure what sparked this new excitement, but now I feel the need for everything to be monogrammed.
I found some really cute monogrammed shoes online and I thought “I can do this”. Mind you they aren’t embroidered like the ones I found online. I found some cheap low top white tennis shoes for around $10. I already had the other supplies! Can’t beat a speciality pair of shoes for $10!
Next, I went to Mark and Graham and made a monogram. I put it into my Silhouette software and cut my freezer paper. I had to iron the freezer paper on the tongue of the shoes which was a little bit of a challenge, but I got it. Make sure to take the tags off the tongue, the ones I bought were stitched on so this was pretty easy. After I ironed the stencil I had made from the freezer paper, I used matte black fabric paint. I let it dry completely before I peeled off the stencil, then I hit it lightly with the iron. I was very satisfied with how they turned out.
After I was done I thought how cute it would be do add a little monogram to the back. I painted the back square where the name of the shoes were with black acrylic paint. After they were dry I cut my tiny monograms with white permeant vinyl. I used my tweezers to apply them to the backs of my shoes.
They are so cute! Can’t wait to wear them this summer!
