Customized monogram slippers - Rachel Teodoro

Customized monogram slippers

As a thrifty crafter, I'm always on the look out for plain surfaces that are cheap so that I can customize them and make them my own. If you hadn't noticed, sometimes finding plain items to use can be hard. Finding plain items that are cheap can be even harder! But, I'm always up for the challenge! Some of the best places to look are in the clearance rack {Target has some great tank tops I love to use HTV on} and of course, my favorite, at garage sales.

I found this plain pair of slippers {they were originally from Victoria's Secret} for $3 and couldn't wait to get some sparkly heat transfer vinyl on them. I'm showing you how to make them today.

I'm always a big fan of showing you before and afters. The plain slippers were just fine, but, they needed a little something don't you think?

I used my Silhouette design software to create a monogram. Don't overthink it. You can follow Melissa's tutorial on how to create a monogram here, or simply do what I did and create two circles and make your letters different sizes. Easy peasy. I'm telling you this because I overthought it. Not all letters look good in a monogram. Trust me.

Cut your heat transfer vinyl out. I used this glitter HTV from Expressions Vinyl. I've never used it before and I thought that maybe it would be harder to use, but it cut like butter and didn't have any problems transferring to my slippers. I'm sold!

If you have never used HTV before you can find a full tutorial on how to cut it here.


Some HTV tips for you:

Always reverse your image
Put your HTV shiny side down into your machine
Always double cut and use a mat
Use a lightweight piece of cotton to iron your transfer on
Press your iron firmly and for at least 20 seconds in each area
Let your transfer cool and then peel {unless otherwise noted on your medium}


I think Sophie is thrilled with me trying to teach her how to fetch my slippers for me.

These monogrammed slippers would be great for a wedding shower gift, for a hard to shop for teenage girl, or really, for just about anyone.

Keep your eyes peeled for those blank items that you can jazz up a bit with your Silhouette machine. Think outside the box. You don't just need to put heat transfer vinyl on t-shirts. The possibilities are endless!
