What I did:

I created a design with umbrellas, rain clouds, raindrops and text in my Silhouette Design Studio software. Be sure to measure design area on boot and size vinyl design to fit.

Insert vinyl into the machine, vinyl side up. Adjust blade settings and send design to cut.

When cutting has finished, unload vinyl from machine. Weed away the excess vinyl that’s not a part of the design.

Slowly peel away transfer paper.

Remember in step 1 where I mentioned measuring and sizing. Oops. I was a bit off. So I peeled up the vinyl, like stickers, and re-placed them for a better fit (not over a seam).

Now I have cute custom rain boots! I also tested the vinyl adhesive using water and the vinyl is still “stuck”!

Lots of fun options to play with! Raining cats and dogs, dance in the rain, your name or a cute and trendy design. What would you create for your rain boots?
