Lucky Chucks for St. Patrick's Day

Make Your Chucks Lucky for St. Patrick’s Day

March 5th, 2018 • Contributor: Jessica Roe from Everyday Party Magazine

Hi everyone! It’s officially March, so I can break out all of my clovers and rainbows!! For real though, I’m probably the worst ever when it comes to wearing green on St. Paddy’s Day...this year I want to make it a little easier on myself, and still rock my mom blogger uniform. (AKA jeans or khaki shorts, a t-shirt, and Chucks, the nickname for Converse)

My oldest works at a shoe store and gets a killer discount on Chucks for me, so I have more now than I’ve ever had...which is what led me to today’s simple, albeit unconventional, St. Patrick’s Day DIY.

1: Measure Shoes

Measure the spaces on your shoes

Measure the space for your design. I decided to add iron-on to the back of the shoes and the tongue.

2: Create Your Design

Open Design Space and create your design (or use this cut file) and size it to fit your shoes. I used Anna’s Fancy Lettering - Carson font for the text.

3: Cut Out Design

Send the image to your Cricut to cut. Don’t forget to mirror the cut and cut the iron-on shiny side down if you are using traditional iron-on)

4: Weed Iron-on

Weed your iron-on

Weed the Iron On, and place it on your shoes as a “dry run” to check placement.

5: Remove Tags and Preheat EasyPress

Preheat the EasyPress to 360* and remove the tag from the tongue on your shoes using the Cricut Sewing Tools if you choose to place iron-on there.

6: Apply Iron-on to Tongue

Apply Iron-on to Tongue

Weed the Iron On, and place it on your shoes as a “dry run” to check placement.

7: Apply Iron-on to Back

Apply Iron-on to Back

If you choose to add text to the “spine” of the shoe, carefully heat the shoe, add the iron-on, and press it on. This will require a second set of hands...wearing oven mitts.

8: Rock Your Chucks

Wear your new lucky Chucks

Sham-ROCK St. Paddy’s Day in your awesome new Chucks!
