Introduction

For a baby, make a complete outfit with matching onesie and leggings. Note: We recommend cutting out a scrap piece of paper to test sizing on your pair of shoes.

steps

  1. Design and cut iron-on: Follow the project link to Design Space®. If necessary, click "Customize," and use the resizing tools and the basic shapes in the Edit panel to weld and slice to best fit your shoes. (Tip: If you are unfamiliar with Design Space basics, check out the links in the "More Help" section.)

  2. Select "Mirror On," then click "Continue," or "Make It."

  3. Cut a 12-by-6-inch piece of Iron-on Lite and place it film-side down onto the StandardGrip mat.

  4. Follow the prompts to load the machine. Set SmartSet Dial to "Iron-on." Load Fine-Point Blade in Clamp B. Load mat and press the Load/Unload button.

  5. Press the flashing "Go" button, and cut! Unload the mat. Remove the film from the cutting mat. Against a firm and protected surface, use the Weeder from the Basic Tool Set to remove the negative film from the backer (the film "positive" should remain on the backer). (Tip: Gently poke the material to lift or scrape away.)

  6. Assemble: Separate the cat designs and cut away excess film. Test fit the designs against your pair of shoes. Trim by hand if necessary.

  7. Follow the ironing instructions included with the Iron-on Lite packaging to adhere the material to each shoe. (Tip: You can learn more about Iron-on application at help.cricut.com.)
