I’m sharing a super-easy and fast project today; as you know I’m hard at work on my garage entry/pantry/mudroom project and that’s taking most of my DIY time right now.

But THIS project is further proof (as if we needed any) that you really can monogram anything!

I think I’ve mentioned that my daughter is crazy for ballet; she just returned from a two-week intensive at the University of Georgia and is already back at it in the studio.  One of the things she really wanted after her time with professional dancers was a pair of warm up booties, so I bought her a pair for her birthday.

When you’re at the studio for hours at a time, you pop these on your feet to keep them warm in between classes.  And–guess what–everyone has pretty much the exact same ones, so it’s hard to tell them apart. Fixed that!

I created a vines font interlocking monogram for her on heat transfer vinyl using {this} easy tutorial.  If you’ve never used iron on vinyl before, the best one that I’ve found is linked in the sources at the end of the post.  They can be temperamental (and that can ruin your project), but this one has never failed me.

If you’re a Silhouette owner and are interested in a tutorial post on iron-on vinyl, just let me know!

A few seconds with my iron and a pressing cloth, and the booties were ready to go.  The pressing cloth is always used with iron on vinyl, but it’s especially important with this application since you don’t want to melt the nylon of the booties with the heat of the iron!

She loves how they turned out and I’m glad she’ll be able to tell hers apart from everyone else’s!
